    find the area of surface generated by revolving the are about y axis

    the question is x = (e^t)(cos t ) , y = (e^t)(sin t ) , about y axis , where y = between 0 and 1 i have problem of finding the value of t when 1 = (e^t)(cos t ) and also 0 = (e^t)(cos t ) , since the integral cant be integrate so i let is as I . how to continue form my working ?

    Volume after revolving an equation around the x=2?

    For my calc class my professor sent out (yet another) online practice quiz (only for participation points) and I don't know what to do for this question. He never explained it. He tends to have more time assigning things than he does explaining them :( Can you help?

    Can't integrate the surface area of revolving curve the normal way

    Here's the problem I was given: Find the area of the surface generated by revolving the curve x=\frac{e^y + e^{-y} }{2} from 0 \leq y \leq ln(2) about the y-axis. I tried the normal route first... g(y) = x = \frac{1}{2} (e^y + e^{-y}) g'(y) = dx/dy = \frac{1}{2} (e^y - e^{-y}) S =...

    Volume Revolving Solids From Area Between Curves

    I'm working on trying to get a 3D ellipsoid from the area bounded by two curves. To get this curve, I am reflecting the parabola y = -x^2 + x + 2 over the x-axis to get y = x^2 - x - 2. This gives me an area bounded on the x-interval (-1, 2). So when I set up my bounds function, I get Bounds =...

    Area of revolving function

    A metal ring is designed by revolving the region between the graphs of y=x^2 and y=x^(1/3) about the line y=3 where x and y are in cm. If the material the ring is made from weighs 10 grams per cubic cm, what is the weight of the ring? I set the two functions equal to each function and found the...
