Unformatted text preview: ways, but the simplest cross section is a rectangle. If we let h equal the height of the slice then the volume of the slice is: ( 29 2 V x y h dx = Since the wedge is cut at a 45 o angle: x h 45 o h x = Since 2 2 9 x y + = 2 9 y x =- x y ( 29 2 V x y h dx = h x = 2 9 y x =-( 29 2 2 9 V x x x dx =- 3 2 2 9 V x x dx =- 2 9 u x = -2 du x dx = -( 29 9 u = ( 29 3 u = 1 2 9 V u du = - 9 3 2 2 3 u = 2 27 3 = 18 = Even though we started with a cylinder, does not enter the calculation!
