From 11:00PM PDT on Friday, July 1 until 5:00AM PDT on Saturday, July 2, the Shmoop engineering elves will be making tweaks and improvements to the site. That means Shmoop will be unavailable for use during that time. Thanks for your patience!

Shells Exercises

Example 1

Let R be our favorite region.

Use the shell method to write an integral expression for the volume of the solid obtained by rotating R around the line x = 2.

Example 2

Once again, we'll let R be our favorite region.

Use the shell method to write an integral expression for the volume of the solid obtained by rotating R around the line y = 1.

Example 3

Let R be the region in the first quadrant bounded by the graph y = x2, the y-axis, and the line y = 4. Use the shell method to write an integral expression for the volume of the solid obtained by rotating R around the y-axis.

Example 4

Let R be the region in the first quadrant bounded by the graph y = x2, the y-axis, and the line y = 4. Use the shell method to write an integral expression for the volume of the solid obtained by rotating R around the line x = -1.

Example 5

Let R be the region in the first quadrant bounded by the graph y = x2, the y-axis, and the line y = 4. Use the shell method to write an integral expression for the volume of the solid obtained by rotating R around the x-axis.

Example 6

Let R be the region in the first quadrant bounded by the graph y = x2, the y-axis, and the line y = 4. Use the shell method to write an integral expression for the volume of the solid obtained by rotating R around the line y = 5.
