Items tagged with volume-of-revolution


Dear Maple experts,


I would like to teach volume of solids generated by revolution of an area between two curves by washers & cylindrical shell methods uisng Maple technology to my students. In this regard, I request the Maple experts to provide easy commands to meet my requirement.


With thanks & best regards.

How do i can find volume of solid of revolution formed when the closed loop of the curve is rotated about the x-axis?

Hi, there

How can we plot the volume of revolution of the region between two curves y=2x-x^2 and y=sqrt(2x-x^2) around the x-axis?

Any help will be appreciated. I used a command in maple 13 but the result was a sphere!



Dear Exppert,

I used the following command to plot the volume of revolutionin Maple13, but with the message "unable to invert function w.r.t. the vertical axis."


VolumeOfRevolution(sqrt(1-(x-4)^2), -sqrt(1-(x-4)^2), x=3..5, axis=vertical, scaling=constrained, output=plot).

Meanwhile, this command can plot each function individually, which is a semi-torus.



How to implement this in maple, can be developed graphically?
