1. Let the base of a solid be a 30

right triangle, with smallest leg of length 3 units. The cross
sections of the solid perpendicular to that leg are semicircles. Draw a picture of the base, and a cross
section, and then ﬁnd the volume
V
of the solid.
2. Let

R
denote the region bounded by the graph of
f
and the
x
axis. Calculate
the volume
V
1
of the solid generated by revolving
R
about the
x
axis, and draw an associated ﬁgure
of the solid. Then calculate the volume
V
2
of the solid generated by revolving
R
about the
y
axis,
and draw an associated ﬁgure of the solid. From your ﬁgures, would you guess which of the volumes,
V

or
V
