Accumulated cross-sections module

Overview

After completing this section, students should be able to do the following.

  • Apply the procedure of “Slice, Approximate, Integrate” to derive a formula for volume of solids with known cross-section areas
  • Set up an integral or sum of integrals that gives the volume of a solid whose cross sections are familiar geometric shapes.

We can also use the procedure of ``Slice, Approximate, Integrate'' to set up integrals to compute volumes.
