`y = 1 + sec(x), y = 3` Find the volume of the solid obtained by rotating the region bounded by the given curves about the specified line. Sketch the region, the solid, and a typical disk or washer. (about y = 1)

Expert Answers

An illustration of the letter 'A' in a speech bubbles

`y=1+sec(x),y=3`

Refer the image. From the graph, the curves intersects at x=-pi/3 and x=pi/3.

Using washer method,

A cross section is a washer of cross sectional area A(x) with,

Inner radius=(1+sec(x))-1=sec(x)

Outer radius=3-1=2

`A(x)=pi(2^2-(sec(x))^2)`

`A(x)=pi(4-sec^2(x))`

`y=1+sec(x),y=3`

Refer the image. From the graph, the curves intersects at x=-pi/3 and x=pi/3.

Using washer method,

A cross section is a washer of cross sectional area A(x) with,

Inner radius=(1+sec(x))-1=sec(x)

Outer radius=3-1=2

`A(x)=pi(2^2-(sec(x))^2)`

`A(x)=pi(4-sec^2(x))`

Volume of the solid obtained by rotating the region bounded by the given curves about y=1 (V) is,

`V=int_(-pi/3)^(pi/3)A(x)dx`

`V=int_(-pi/3)^(pi/3)pi(4-sec^2(x))dx`

`V=2piint_0^(pi/3)(4-sec^2(x))dx`

`V=2pi[4x-tan(x)]_0^(pi/3)`

`V=2pi((4*pi/3-tan(pi/3))-(4*0-tan(0)))`

`V=2pi(4*pi/3-sqrt(3)-0)`

`V=2pi((4pi)/3-sqrt(3))`
