Bob Brown Math 252 Calculus 2 Chapter 7, Section 2 Completed 1 CCBC Dundalk Volume of a Solid of Revolution: Using the Disk Method Another application of the definite integral is the computation of the volume of a particular type of three-dimensional solid, called a solid of revolution . A solid of revolution is obtained by revolving a region in the plane about a line. This line is called the axis of revolution . Revolving this rectangle, we get a disk—a hockey puck. Compute the volume of the disk: * cross-sectional area is the area of a = * width = Therefore, volume = Revolving a More General Region The volume of a solid of revolution is approximated by the of the The radius of each disc is R i = for some The width of each disk is The approximate volume of the solid of revolution is The exact volume of the solid of revolution is
