A solid generated by rotating about the x-axis the region under the curve of f(x) from x=0 to x=b, is b^2 FOR ALL b>0. Find the function f.

  • Calculus Help -

    Let's assume that f(0) = 0. Then

    ∫[0,b] f'(x) dx = b^2
    f(b) = b^2
    f(x) = x^2
    f'(x) = 2x

    ∫[0,b] 2x dx = x^2 [0,b] = b^2

    There are lots of other possible functions. Such as

    ∫[0,b] e^x dx = 1/k e^(kb) - 1
    1/k e^(kb) - 1 = b^2
    e^(kb) = k(1+b^2)
