Solids of a Revolution

This is part of the HSC Mathematics Extension 1 course under the topic: Applications of Calculus, in particular, further area and volumes of solids of revolution.

Let’s start with the basics of volumes and solids of revolution, calculating the area of regions between curves determined by functions.
