You're just using integration to find the volume of the cylinder with radius 7 and height 7?.
Using the equation of the base, which is a circle of radius 7.
I have a cyclindar that is 7 m high, 14 meters in diameter, and 7 m wide. I need to use a definite integral to determine the volume of this taking slices from the bottom to the top of it. So, I need to evalute the integral from 0 to 7 of pi (7-h)2 and since it is only half a cyclindar I would multiple the whole integral by 1/2. Am I close to right here???? THis is the most confusing assignment I have come up against and I do not have a way to check if I am doing this correctly. Thanks for the assistance all you smart math folks.
Actually, I misspoke. The cylinder has a radius of 7, is 7 units tall but it is 10 units in depth in other words I need to take slices from 0 to 7 units in height but I have to account for it being 10 units in thickness. I only go from 0 to 7 since I have half a cylinder. If I had a whole cylinder I would go from -7 to 7 correct? So, my integral would be from 0 to 7 of pi times radius squared but how do I account for the 10 units of depth????
I'm confused about what you mean. A cylinder has a radius and a height.
Thus we have the formula for volume of a cylinder.
When you compute your integral, compare it to that formula.
What do you mean by thickness?. I am thinking the cylinder has a 7 inch radius(14 inch diameter) and is 10 inches tall?.
If that is the case, just use the integral I gave. To incorporate the height just multiply by it.
