Please help. :( In the figure below, rectangle ABCD is rotated about side AB. If Ab = 10 and BC = 4 , what is the volume of the resulting solid?

    First, it helps to figure out what solid figure you'll get if you rotate this

    Any ideas of what type of solid figure it will be?

    Imagine spinning this around AB (think of AB as stuck to the ground) and this rectangle is like a door. What you'll get is a cylinder.

    How'd you get that? Is that like common sense or something?

    I'm imagining it in my mind really, but you can grab a rectangular object and spin it along a side. You'll see that it traces out a cylinder.

    then i guess by rotates they mean folded kinda??

    When it's not moving, it's in one spot...but when it spins, it resembles a circle correct?

    since the whole side BC is 4?

    that's actually the radius since that's as far as it goes in that direction

    The rectangle will rotate about that dotted line (which is AB) to create that cylinder. So that's why the radius is 4.

    I spun the rectangle around that dotted line. The cylinder represents the space that the rectangle carves out (think of the spinning rectangle as a saw or drill cutting into wood)

    oh, so AB stays in one spot and The rest of the rectangle kinda like spun around to make the cylinder?

    exactly, AB never move at all but the other points spin/move around
