Unit: Applications of Integration Module: Finding Volumes Using Cross-Sections Finding Volumes Using Cross-Sectional Slices www.thinkwell.com [email protected] Copyright 2001, Thinkwell Corp. All Rights Reserved. 1585 –rev 08/29/2001 The volume of a solid with vertical cross-sections of area A ( x ) is V where: = () b a VA x d x . The volume of a solid with horizontal cross-sections of area A ( y ) is V where: = b a y d y . Finding the volume of an object is pretty easy if you know the formula. But a lot of objects don’t fit any commonly known formulas. How do you find the volumes of these strangely shaped objects? If you consider the object in slices, then all you would have to do is find the volume of each individual slice and then add them together. These slices are called
