Check my work on this please? :)
Surface integral for the parametric equations
x = 4 + te\(^t\), y = (t\(^2\) + 1)e\(^t\), 0 ≤ t ≤ 3
Reference:
Surface Area = \(\large\int\limits_{a}^{b} 2\pi\ y\ ds \)
ds for parametric = \( \large\sqrt{(\frac{dx}{dt})^2+(\frac{dy}{dt})^2}\ dt \)
So...
\[S.A. = \large\int\limits_{a}^{b} 2\pi\ ((t^2+1)e^t) \sqrt{(\frac{dx}{dt})^2+(\frac{dy}{dt})^2}\ dt \]
\(dx = te^t\ dt\)
\(\large\frac{dx}{dt} = te^t\)
\(dy = (t^2+1)e^t+e^t(2t)\ dt \)
\(\large\frac{dy}{dt} = e^t(t^2+2t+1) \)
\(\large\frac{dy}{dt} = e^t(t+1)^2 \)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'll have to leave soon unfortunately, but I wanted to get this up before I left because it can take several hours for these hard types of questions to be answered typically :D Hopefully I don't have any glaring errors >_<

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes sir that is correct, xaxis rotation. That wasn't in the question's specific directions, but it was in the section's directions. Sorry about that. :/
