The line that the solid of rotated about is called the axis of revolution The volume of a solid of revolution is obtained by evaluating: b V = ! e(x)dx, if thesolid is obtained by rotating a plane region about the xaxis or a line parallel to the xaxis, where a < x < b  d , = {Orrrdy,if the solid is obtained by rotating aplane region about theyaxis or a line parallel to theyaxis, where c s y s d. For any given problem, the appropriate integral (with respect to x or with respectto y) can be obtained by slicing perpendicular to the axis of revolution and determining whether the slice has thickness Ax or ff . If the slice is Ax thick, then since Ax becomes dx,youshould evaluate V = [ l(x)dx. However if the slice is Ay thick, then since Ay becomes dy,youshould evaluate V =i e1y1ay. c The integrand of the above integrals is the crosssectional area, A(.r) or A(y), obtained as follows: . If the crosssection is a disk (the axis of revolution lies directly against the plane region), then obtain the radius of the disk (as either a function ofr or a function of y, whichever is appropriate), and use A = n(radiur)'= or"  . If the crosssection is a washer (there is empty space between the axis of revolution and the plane region), ttren obtain the inner radius and the outer radius of the washer (as either a function ofx or a function ofy, whichever is appropriate), and use A : a[(outer radius)'  (inner radius)'] : ,({r*,)'  (t,)t) The radius, whether itbe for a disk or a washer, is always measured from the axis of revolution and perpendicular to the axis of revolution. 5'x+V Example. Find the volume of the solid obtained when the region bounded by the xaxis, theyaxis, and the line y = x * 3 is rotated about the raxis.the raxis....
