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
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
Any ideas of what type of solid figure it will be?

i have no clue.

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.

  • anonymous
How'd you get that? Is that like common sense or something?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
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??
anonymous
  • anonymous
**rotated
anonymous
  • anonymous
like rolled up?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
no it's not folding in any way
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
one moment while I track down an animation of this

okay, thank you.
jim_thompson5910

hmm not finding much sadly, but think of a propeller blade

It's alright. I got it. so what do i do after?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
When it's not moving, it's in one spot...but when it spins, it resembles a circle correct?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Oh. Okay. So its a cyclinder. what do i do after?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
what's the height of the cylinder?
anonymous
  • anonymous
10.
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
and what's the radius of the top of the cylinder?
anonymous
  • anonymous
but isn't the circumference 4?
anonymous
  • anonymous
since the whole side BC is 4?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
that's not the circumference
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
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.
anonymous
  • anonymous
I don't really get how its four...
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
Do you see how that cylinder is created?
anonymous
  • anonymous
how'd you get it? i still dont get how you created the cylinder like that..
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
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)
anonymous
  • anonymous
but how is the radius 4? wouldn't it be 2?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
no, the radius is shown in the next drawing |dw:1338519158344:dw|
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
and that length is exactly the length of BC
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh, so AB stays in one spot and The rest of the rectangle kinda like spun around to make the cylinder?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
exactly, AB never move at all but the other points spin/move around
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
A and B never move as well
anonymous
  • anonymous
ohhh, i get it. so is the answer 160 pi?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
you nailed it
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yay :) thank you so much x)
