11. (a) It follows from Cavalieri's Principle that the volume of a column is the same as the volume of a right
prism with a square base of side length s and altitude h. Thus, STEP 1) A(x) (side length)# s# ;
STEP 2) a 0, b h; STEP 3) V 'a A(x) dx '0 s# dx s# h
b

(b) From Cavalieri's Principle we conclude that the volume of the column is the same as the volume of the
prism described above, regardless of the number of turns V s# h
12. 1) The solid and the cone have the same altitude of 12.
2) The cross sections of the solid are disks of diameter
x  x# x# . If we place the vertex of the cone at the
origin of the coordinate system and make its axis of
symmetry coincide with the x-axis then the cone's cross
sections will be circular disks of diameter

4   4 # (see accompanying figure).
3) The solid and the cone have equal altitudes and identical
parallel cross sections. From Cavalieri's Principle we
conclude that the solid and the cone have the same
volume.

From the discussion in part (a) we conclude that the function's absolute maximum value is 1# , taken on at

the endpoint c 0.
(c) The graph of the solid's volume as a function of c for

[! "] the volume of the solid increases without bound.
If we approximate the solid as a set of solid disks, we
can see that the radius of a typical disk increases without
