Examples for

Surfaces & Solids of Revolution

Surfaces of revolution and solids of revolution are some of the primary applications of integration. A two-dimensional curve can be rotated about an axis to form a solid, surface or shell. Use Wolfram|Alpha to accurately compute the volume or area of these solids. Examples of the methods used are the disk, washer and cylinder method.

Surfaces of Revolution

Find the surface area of a plane curve rotated about an axis.
