SL17 Geometry for method of slices: o for each slice must find weight, Wi and base angle, <Xi: o can draw slope with slices to scale and measure with scale and protractor o or can use trigonometry: Xi = R sin <Xi y H Yi = R cos <Xi ~Xi first define the circle center, the circle radius R, the width ~Xi of each slice, and the horizontal distance, Xi, from the circle center to the slice center since X I = Rsin (X.i then (X.i = sin· 1 (~ ) the volume of the slice is ~ihi where hi = height of the slice at its center and hi = Rcos(X.j - ~Yj where ~Yi = distance to
