Mini-Project Areas and Volumes

Name: Hannah Park


In this project you will create a region enclosed by two functions completely within the first
quadrant. You will find the area of that region (easy); you will find the volume of the solid that is
created by using that region as a base with geometric cross-sections (not too bad); and you will
find the volume created revolving that region around an axis of revolution (a triffle bit harder,
perhaps).
Part 1: Creating your region (3 points)
Create two functions, f(x) and g(x), subject to the following constraints:
a) they must intersect at least twice in the FIRST QUADRANT (important) to create a
region between them;
b) neither can be a polynomial; neither can be a simple function (i.e., sin(x), e x)
Write the functions here:

Write the x coordinates of the intersection points here:

a = 0.1

b = 1.4

Graph the region below (USE WINPLOT. I WANT WINPLOT HERE. DID I SAY WINPLOT?? )

Part 2: Area of Region (3 points)


Write the integral that expresses the area of your region:

Evaluate that integral (calculator permitted):

=0.607 square units


Part 3: Volume of solid created by using region as a base using cross-sections
perpendicular to the x-axis that are squares. (4 points)
You will now create a solid that uses the region as a base that has cross-sections perpendicular
to the x-axis that are squares.
Use WinPlot ahem, WinPlot, yes? to draw your solid, paste the solid in to the space below.

Write the integral that expresses the volume of the solid:

Evaluate that integral (Calculator Permitted) :

Part 4: Volume of solid created by using region as a base using cross-sections


perpendicular to the x-axis that are semi-circles. (4 points)

You will now create a solid that uses the region as a base that has cross-sections perpendicular
to the x-axis that are semi-circles.
Use WinPlot ahem, WinPlot, yes? to draw your solid, paste the solid in to the space below.

Write the integral that expresses the volume of the solid:

Evaluate that integral (Calculator Permitted):

Part 5: Volume of Revolution axis of revolution below the region (5 points)


Pick an axis of revolution parallel to the x-axis that is below the x-axis : y = _______
Using WINPLOT (ahem) graph your region and your axis of revolution. Paste that into the space
below.

Write the integral expression that gives the volume of the solid you get when region R is revolved
around your axis of revolution:

Evaluate that integral (Calculator Permitted):

Part 6: Volume of Revolution axis of revolution above the region (5 points)

Pick an axis of revolution parallel to the x-axis that is above the region, R: y = _______
Using WINPLOT (ahem) graph your region and your axis of revolution. Paste that into the space
below.

Write the integral expression that gives the volume of the solid you get when region R is revolved
around your axis of revolution:
