You need to determine the inner and the outer radius such that:
inner radius: `r(x) = -1 - cos(3x)`
outer radius: `R(x) = -1 - cos x`
You need to evaluate the cross sectional area such that:
`A(x) = pi(R^2(x) - r^2(x))`
`A(x) = pi((-1 - cos x)^2 - (-1 - cos 3x)^2)`
`A(x) = pi(1 + 2cos x + cos^2 x - 1 - 2cos 3x - cos^2 3x)`
You need to evaluate the volume of solid of revolution such that:
`V(x) = int_0^(pi) A(x) dx`
Substituting `pi(1 + 2cos x + cos^2 x - 1 - 2cos 3x - cos^2 3x)` for A(x) yields:
`V(x) = int_0^(pi) pi(2cos x + cos^2 x - 2cos 3x - cos^2 3x) dx`
Using the linearity of integral yields:
`V(x) = pi( int_0^(pi) 2cos x dx + int_0^(pi) cos^2 x dx - int_0^(pi)2cos 3x dx- int_0^(pi)cos^2 3x dx)`
`V(x) = pi(2sin x + int_0^(pi) (1 + cos 2x)/2 dx - 2 (sin 3x)/3 - int_0^(pi) (1 + cos 6x)/2 dx)`
`V(x) = pi(2sin x + x/2 + (sin 2x)/4 - 2 (sin 3x)/3 - x/2 - (sin 6x)/12)|_0^pi`
`V(x) = pi(2sin x + (sin 2x)/4 - 2 (sin 3x)/3 - (sin 6x)/12)|_0^pi`
`V(x) = pi(2sinpi + (sin 2pi)/4 - 2 (sin 3pi)/3 - (sin 6pi)/12 - 2sin0- (sin 0)/4 +2 (sin 0)/3+ (sin 0)/12)`
Since `sin pi = sin 2pi = sin 3pi = sin 0 = 0` yields:
`V(x) = 0`
Hence, evaluating the volume of the solid of revolution, under the given conditions yields `V(x) = 0` .
