standard way to form volume if spun around x-axis
y = x^3 + 1 ---> this becomes the radius of your disk
we need the x-intercept,
let x^3 + 1 = 0
x = -1 ---> this becomes our left boundary
Volume = π∫(x^3 + 1)^2 dx from x = -1 to x = 1
= π∫(x^6 + 2x^3 + 1) dx
= π [ x^7/7 + x^4/2 + x] from -1 to 1
= π( 1/7 + 1/2 + 1 - ( -1/7) + 1/2 - 1)
= P π( 2/7 + 2)= 16π/7
y = 1/x
so y^2 = 1/x^2
V = π∫1/x^2 dx from π/8 to π/2
= π [ - 1/x ] from π/8 to π/2
= π ( -2/π - (-8/π)
= -2+8 = 6
#3, first you need the intersection:
x^3 + x^2 = 2x^2 + 2x
x^3 - x^2 - 2x = 0
x(x^2 - x - 2) = 0
x(x-2)(x+1) = 0
they intersect at x = -1, x=0 and x=2
So you must find the volume separately from
x = -1 to x = 0 , and then from x = 0 to x = 2
from -1 to 0 , the cubic is the upper curve, while from
0 to 2, the parabola is the upper curve
So you have
V = π∫( (x^3 + x^2)^2 - (2x^2 + 2x)^2 ) dx from -1 to 0 + π∫( (2x^2 + 2x)^2 - (x^3 + x^2)^2 ) dx from 0 to 2
Thank you very much Reiny. I understand it a bit better now.
