Multivariable Calculus : Volume of a Solid of Revolution

Find the volume of the given solid: The solid lies under the hyperboloid z = xy and above the triangle in the xy-plane with vertices (1, 2), (1, 4), and (5, 2)

Solution Preview

Well, above xy-plane means that z>0. Then we have the limits of z.
Then we must consider 2-D i.e. xy plane and those 3 points to find the limits of x and ...

Solution Summary

The volume of a solid of revolution is found.
