Suppose that a semicircular region with a vertical diameter of length 6 is rotated about that diameter. Determine the exact surface area and the exact volume of the resulting solid of revolution.
The surface area and volume of the solid.
A solid of revolution is obtained by rotating a plane region around a straight line lying on the same plane. The straight line is called the axis of revolution. It may be vertical, horizontal or oblique.
A sphere is a three dimensional solid figure, which is made up of all the points in space, which lie at a common distance, called the radius, from a fixed point called the center of the sphere. The surface area of a sphere , where r is the radius of the sphere.
All solid bodies occupy space. The measure of occupied space is called the volume of the object. Volume of a sphere
Consider a semi circular region that is rotated about its vertical diameter. The resultant solid of revolution that is formed is a sphere, where diameter .
