The region bounded by the given curves is rotated about the specified axis. Find the volume V of the resulting solid by any method.
y = −x2 + 7x − 12, y = 0; about the x-axis
y = -(x-3)(x-4)
So, using discs of thickness dx,
v = ∫[3,4] πr^2 dx
v = ∫[3,4] π(x^2-7x+12)^2 dx = π/30
Using shells of thickness dy, and taking advantage of the symmetry,
v = 2∫[0,1/4] 2πrh dy
where r=y and h=√(1/4 - y)
v = 2∫[0,1/4] 2πy√(1/4 - y) dy = π/30
A variable force of
pounds moves an object along a straight line when it is x feet from the origin. Calculate the work done in moving the object from
x = 1
x = 19
ft. (Round your answer to two decimal places.)
