revolution volumes

Download the sketch: Calculus_Revolution_3.gsp

This is a newer version of the revolution sketch about volumes in calculus.  These volumes can be measured using the disc/washer method or the cylinder/shell method.  I made a video which does not go through every variation on the problem, but it should give you an idea of how to use the sketch to look at this topic.

This topic appears in Chapter 7 of the Finney, Demana, Waits, and Kennedy calculus book that I use.
