To find the area of a surface of revolution, we can divide the surface into narrow circular bands, figure the surface area of a representative band, and then just add up the areas of all the bands to get the total surface area. Surface Area for Revolution about the x-axis If the function f ( x ) 0 is continuously differentiable on [ a,b ], the area of the surface generated by revolving the curve y = f ( x ) about the x-axis is S = Z b a 2 f ( x ) p 1 + ( f ( x )) 2 d x. Surface Area for Revolution about the y-axis If x = g ( y ) 0 is continuously differentiable on [ c,d ], the area of the surface generated by revolving the curve x = g ( y ) about the y-axis is S = Z d c 2 g ( y ) p 1 + ( g ( y )) 2 d y. Examples 1. Find the area of the curved surface of a right-circular cone of base radius r and height h by rotating the straight line segment from (0 , 0) to ( r,h ) about the y-axis. 1 2. A band is formed by being cut from a sphere of radius R by parallel planes h units apart. Compute the surface area of the band. 3. A disk of radius a has center at the point ( b, 0), where b > a > 0. The disk is rotated about the y- axis to generate a torus. Find its surface area. 4. Find the surface area of the surface obtained by rotating the ellipse x 2 + 4 y 2 = 4 about the x-axis. 5. Find the surface area of the surface obtained by rotating the ellipse x 2 + 4 y 2 = 4 about the y-axis. 6. For what values of k does the surface generated by rotating the curve y = x k , < x < 1, about the y-axis have a finite surface area? 7. A hollow container in the shape of an infinitely long horn is generated by rotating the curve y = 1 x , 1 x < , about the x-axis. (a) Find the volume of the container. (b) Show that the container has infinite surface area. (c) How do you explain the paradox that the container can be filled with a finite volume of paint but requires infinitely much paint to cover its surface? Masses Along a Line-One Dimensional Discrete Case Suppose that masses m 1 , m 2 ,..., m k are on a rigid x-axis supported by a fulcrum at the origin. Let Torque of m i = m i gx i , i = 1 , 2 ,...,k, where x i is the signed distance from the point of application to the origin. This measures the turning effect by mass x i . Masses to the left of the origin exert negative (counter-....
