190 Chapter 9 Applications of Integration the horn is Z 1 0 π ( x 2 ) 2 dx = Z 1 0 πx 4 dx = π 1 5 , so the desired volume is π/ 3 - π/ 5 = 2 π/ 15. As with the area between curves, there is an alternate approach that computes the desired volume “all at once” by approximating the volume of the actual solid. We can approximate the volume of a slice of the solid with a washer-shaped volume, as indicated in figure 9.10 . The volume of such a washer is the area of the face times the thickness. The thickness, as usual, is Δ x , while the area of the face is the area of the outer circle minus the area of the inner circle, say πR 2 - πr 2 . In the present example, at a particular x i , the radius R is x i and r is x 2 i . Hence, the whole volume is Z 1 0 πx 2 - πx 4 dx = π x 3 3 - x 5 5 ¶fl fl fl fl 1 0 = π 1 3 - 1 5 = 2 π 15 . Of course, what we have done here is exactly the same calculation as before, except we have in effect recomputed the volume of the outer cone.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
