    Volumes of revolution problem: Where did I go wrong?

    The picture shown below shows two problems. I attempted to solve the one on the left, but the answer I received does not match the answer in the back of the textbook. I would like to know where I went wrong when attempting to solve this problem. 1. Using the values shown, I created the...

    Cone and conical frustum volumes correlation?

    With my high school math skills I can't budge much more than this on the top of my head so... Given a cone (see picture), if we slice it horizontally a certain amount of times, we get many conical frustums and finally a cone on top. For simplicity I divided it just in 3 volumes, and I...

    Volumes of Solid Regions

    Could someone help me out with this problem: Set up an iterated integral representing the volume of the solid region inside the parabolic cylinder y = x2, bounded by the plane z = y + 2, the plane z = y - 2, and the plane y = 1. What I know is that you use a double integral with h(x)-g(x) as the...

    Does center of mass of symmetrical figure split figure into equal volumes?

    The question is as follows: a: Find the center of mass of a solid of constant density bounded below by the paraboloid z^2 =x^2 + y^2 and above by the plane z=4 b. Find the plane, z=c, that divides the solid into two parts of equal volume. This plane does not pass through the center of mass...

    Volume of a Solid

    I'm having trouble with this unit and have one question (#1). I'm sure I can figure out the rest once I get some help, thank you! I've also attached my set-up so far. The quarter circle is confusing me: x^2 + y^2 = 9 y = (sqrt(5)/2)x x = 0

    volumes of revolutions (parametric)

    How can i find the volume of a tear drop curve with the parametric equations of x(t)=cos(t) and y(t)= sin(t)sin^2(t/2), with limits from -1 to 1 using the disk method (intg(lower, upper limit) (y)^2(dx/dt)dt). I would also like to know how i can justify these equations that make the tear drop...

    Liquid Volumes

    "A bottle with a bowl shaped like hemisphere of diameter 8 cm contains 80mL of water, 20mL of powerade, and two ice-spheres, each with a diameter of 2 cm. What is the depth of the liquid?" How I would start the problem is attached: I'm not sure if what I did was correct though. I would...

    Comparing volumes in 8 dimensions

    Hello, I have an 8-dimensional convex hull which I want to approximate by a hyper-ellipsoid. When I project the convex hull into any 2 dimensions, the convex hull projection has a greater area than the projection of the hyper-ellipsoid. However, when I calculate the volume of the 8-dimensional...

    Volumes by cylindrical shells

    Hello, I am supposed to use the method of cylindrical shells to find the volume of the following: y=4x-x^2, y=3 about x=1 The correct answer proposed by the book is \frac{8/pi}{3} but I keep getting 2 times that. Where did I go wrong? Thank you. -Sakon Edit: I think my error is that the...

    Volumes by cylindrical shells

    Hey, In question #1, why is the radius x ? Should it not be (2+x) because we are rotating it around the x=0 and the curve starts at x=2, and ends at x=4? In question 2 , why isn't the function (2- \sqrt{1+x^2} , top most function - bottom function = ?? ?and I am getting 8pi/3 as an answer...

    Volumes by cylindrical shells

    Hello, can someone tell me where I went wrong with trying to find the volume using the shells methode? I get the correct answer using the disk method (5 pi / 14). Thank you!

    Calculus III: defining volumes using spherical and cylindrical coordinates.

    Hi, I need help doing these questions, I'm having trouble with defining the domain of this solid: http://imgur.com/WsqIV5G . So far I've gathered that the (r,z) graph should look like a circle of radius sqrt(2) (for the sphere part) intersected by a line at r = 1 (the cylinder) and shaded in...

    Volumes Of Revolution

    For (i) could I say to revolve the region at x = 1? Would that be a plausible answer? I'm sorry I'm confused.... Is the reason that they're talking about the place where you revolve the shape?
