The Disk Method along the y-Axis

• Revolving a plane region about a line forms a solid of revolution.
• Using the disk method, the volume V of a solid of revolution is given by , where R(y) is the radius of
the solid of revolution with respect to y.

note

- In this example you are asked to find the volume of a
solid of revolution rotated around the y-axis instead of the x-axis.
- Notice that instead of slicing vertically like you would with a rotation about the x-axis, this solid seems easier to solve using the disk method with respect to the y-axis.
- Notice that the thickness of an arbitrary slice of the solid is given by a small change in y, instead of a small change in x.
- That’s a clue that you should integrate with respect to y for this problem.
- Using the disk method to find the volume of vertically stacked disks is much like using the method for horizontally stacked disks.
- To integrate with respect to y you must express all of your functions in terms of y instead of x.
- The disks span from y = 1 to y = 8, so these are the limits of integration. Notice that the limits of integration are also in terms of y.
- The volume of each disk is equal to the area of the disk times the thickness. Remember, the area of a circle is given by the formula A = r 2 .
- Integrate this product, and the result is the volume of the solid of revolution.
