Math 3B - Project #4 Goal: For you to be able to read math text and figure out how a formula is derived (in particular the formula for cylindrical shells in 6.3). I want you to be able to understand where formulas come from and see that you can figure it out on your own by reading/getting help from your peers. Directions: Read section 6.3 in our book. There is a formula on page 434 that describes how to find the volume using cylindrical shells. I want you to derive this formula using methods similar to how we looked at the disc and washer method in class (6.2). This means, following the steps: Draw a picture, Find a slice, Find the volume of the slice after you rotate it about an axis and Find the integral. I want you to derive the formula in a way that you can understand it and in a way that others (including myself) can

Unformatted text preview: understand it. Additional Problems to submit: 6.3: 6, 10, 18 and 7.6: 31 (the one we skipped in the last project!) When you do these problems, I expect you to follow the same steps as mentioned above. Rubric: I will grade this based on whether I can understand what you wrote or not, if the steps you used in solving problems 13 and 29 were correct and if you obtained the correct solutions to problems 13 and 29 in a valid way. I won’t infer anything – you need to be very clear and detailed in your explanations. Due Date: I would like you to email me (or submit by hand) a copy of your project no later than 2/28, 9 pm (1 pm if by hand ) . You may work in groups (up to 5) or by yourself. Please send it to: [email protected] or [email protected]...
