Set up an integral for the volume a solid torus (the donut-shaped solid shown in the figure) with radii br and aR. (Let a = 6 and b = 4.)


By interpreting the integral as an area, find the volume V of the torus.

  1. The Theorem of Pappus will come in handy here.

    Rotate the circle (x-R)^2 + y^2 = r^2
    around the y-axis. The volume of the torus is the area of the circle times the distance traveled by its center.

    Take a stab at it, and don't be afraid to google torus volume to motivate your solution. Reverse engineering works in math, too!
