Using the formula for the surface area of a revolving curve about the x-axis:
S=∫2πy√(1 + (dy/dx)²)dx throughout a,b
Find the area of the surface generated by revolving the curve about the x axis within the given boundaries
y=√(x + 1)
Please be detailed, showing the complete derivation, integration and substitution of limits to find the area.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com March 4, 2021, 6:51 pm ad1c9bdddf
