    Volume of solid by revolution

    Find the volume of the solid formed when when the graph of the region bounded by y=e^x, x=0, x=2, and y=0 is revolved about the x-axis.

    Washer method

    Use the washer method to find the volume of the solid of revolution formed by revolving the region bounded by f (x)= 3x^2 and g (x)=2x+1 about the x-axis. (Round the answer to 4 decimal places.)

    Finding the distance between two fire towers

    A ranger in fire tower A spots a fire at a direction of 295 degrees. A ranger in fire tower B, located 45 miles at a direction of 45 degrees from tower A, spots the same fire at direction of 255 degrees. How far from tower A is the fire? From tower B? I need these example explained to me so that I might better understand the

    Volume of a cylinder

    The volume of a cylinder (think about the volume of a can) is given by V = pi r2h where r is the radius of the cylinder and h is the height of the cylinder. Suppose the volume of the can is 100 cubic centimeters. a) Write h as a function of r. Keep pi in the function's equation. b) What is the measurement of the height if

    Volume of a sphere and surface area of a box

    I need to find the dimensions of a box to fit a #5 size soccer ball that weighs 14 to 16 ounces and has a circumference of 27 to 28 inches. Then I need to find the amount of wrapping paper I would need to wrap the above box.

    Tangent Plane to Parametric Surface

    Find an equation of the tangent plane to the parametric surface x = -1rcos(theta), y = -5rsin(theta), z = r at the point (-1sqrt(2), -5 sqrt(2), 2), when r = 2 and theta = pi/4.

    Geometry - Calculating the Maximum Area a goat can graze

    If a goat is tied on a 50 foot lead to a corner on the outside of a rectangular barn and the barn is 20 feet by 20 feet and the goat can not get into the barn nor is the barn a grazing area, what is the maximum grazing area and show how the maximum grazing area was determined. A man has a barn that is 20 feet by 10 feet, he t
