Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i figured it out...but i dont know why it must be calculated that way

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0for those who want to know what i got: int(pi(22sinx)^2dx,x,0,pi/2)= pi(3pi8)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You are going to use the integral 0 o pi /2 of pi (Upper line minus the lower line)^2...remember revolving about a line that is not the xaxis means going from upper function to lower function and then using that as your radius...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0will reflecting the curve y=2sinx over the y=2 line work?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0when i reflected it i got y=2sinx+2...is that the correct reflection...then tried to find the radius by upperlower divided by 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i think i got the wrong reflection, which is why it didn't work when i did it that way. The reflection of y=2sinx over the line y=2 is really y=2sinx+4....I see my mistake now. Finding the radius that way actually yields the same radius as just upper line minus lower line.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If you have reflected correctly then the integral will yield the same result...remember you are simply trying to figure R(x) which is measure from axis of rotation to the outside edge

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sorry i realized...the answer i got doesn't match the book. Can you find the volume of for y=2sinx and y=2 revolving around y=2 between x=0 and pi/2? so i can check my answer?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0nevermind found the mistake...when taking integral of 8sinx i forgot to switch the sign..
