Volume of Revolution Project:
purpose:
Expand the techniques of numerical integration used to find the area under a curve tofinding the volume of revolution of a physical object. Extend your understanding ofparametric functions to create a 3D model of your solid.
Procedure:
1. Locate a symmetric, but irregular shaped object such as a flower vase, wine glass,or a margarita glass..2. Use a caliper to measure your object. I decided to use mm as my unit ofmeasurement. The length of my object was 167 mm, so i divided it into 15 intervals toget a apropriate data. Each interval is 11.1 mm. look at figure()3. Then i used the mathmatica formula shown below to produce an illustration of myobject with the data i measured. i divided the data i got by two because that way itwould be correct when i rotate it around the x-axis.
