You can't solve that equation for x can you be more specific about what you are trying to do?
Hi it's late but I can't seem to single out x in the following equation:
Can it be done?
I want to evaluate the volume by using washers even though I can just use shells
I knew it!
I was trying to find the volume enclosed by this eq. by washers instead of shells.
From my book:
The book, however, tells me that it is possible but does not elaborateThe volume V can also be found using washers; however, the calculations
would be more involved since the given equation would have to be solved
for x in terms of y.
It's really more a question of surmounting such a simple looking equation than actually finding the volume which I can do fine via shells.
