This collection of interactive excel sheets investigate volumes of revolution by integration.
The first sheet plots the function y= ax2+bx+c and illustrates the area under the curve as well as the volume of revolution between two adjustable limits, x=A and x=B. The constants a, b and c can also be adjusted.
The second sheet displays and calculates the volume of revolution for a linear function. The third sheet calculates the volume for a quadratic function. A new random function can be randomly generated at the click of a button.
