A square of side length s lies in a plane perpendicular to a line L. One vertex of the square lies on L. As this square moves a distance h along L, the square turns one revolution about L to generate a corkscrew-like column with square cross-sections.

a. Find the volume of the column.

b. What will the volume be if the square turns twice instead of once? Give reasons for your answer.

Step 1

- a) It is given that, the square of side lengths lies in a plane perpendicular to a line L. One vertex of square lies on L. The square moves a distance L the square turns one revolution about L to generate a corkscrew like column with square sections.

Step 2

Obtain the volume of the column,

Step 3

b) Obtain the volume if the square turns twice. T...
