Solids Bounded by an Axis is a part of the VCE Specialist Maths topic Calculus and subtopic Applications of Calculus. Let’s start with the basics of volumes and solids of revolution, calculating the area of regions between curves determined by functions.
In this post, we will calculate the volume of a solid of revolution formed by rotating a region in the plane about the x-axis or y-axis.
Introduction to solids of a revolution
This video will introduce solids of revolution.
How to Calculate Solids of a Revolution
Let’s watch the next video to learn how to calculate the volume of a solid of revolution.
We will also determine the volumes of solids of a revolution that are formed by rotating the region between two curves about either the x-axis or y-axis in both real-life and abstract contexts.
