Unformatted text preview: 1 /x . (a) Compute the volume of the “trumpet” formed by rotating the region R about the x-axis. (b) Prove that the surface area of the trumpet is inﬁnite. Remember that to prove this you don’t need to ﬁnd the antiderivative of the resulting integrand, but you can compare this integrand with one with easier antiderivative, and divergent integral. (c) Discuss the apparent counterintuitive results obtained: According to (a), you can ﬁll the trumpet with a ﬁnite amount of paint, but according to (b), apparently you need an inﬁnite amount of paint to coat the inside of the trumpet. Note: there is an interesting article about this on Wikipedia....
