Choose an axis (e.g., the x‐axis) Cut your solid in slices perpendicular to this axis Δx= the thickness of a slice A(x)= the cross‐sec0onal area of a slice Add the volume of all the slices Riemann sum: Σ ΔV = Σ A(x) Δx Send the number of slices to inFnity the Integral of A(x) in dx. A(x) ΔV = A(x) Δx thickness of slice cross‐sec/onal area of slice volume of slice The volume of a slice is ΔV = A(x) Δx “the philosophy of slicing”

Pyramid with square basis Side=L Height =h A(x)=s 2 The volume of a pyramid (s/2) : (L/2) = x : h L’ P’ s = (L/h) x A(x)=(L 2 /h 2 )x 2 The triangles OPL and OP’L’ are similar We need to fnd s (as a Func0on oF x). Every cross‐sec0on is a square. V = A ( x ) dx = L 2 h 2 0 h 0 h x 2 dx = L 2 h 2 x 2 0 h dx = L 2 h 2 h 3 3 = L 2 h 3 L
