# Area of Volume Calculator

0 m³

The Area of Volume Calculator is specifically designed to calculate the volume of an object obtained by revolving a two-dimensional shape around an axis. This type of calculation is critical in numerous fields, including mechanical engineering, architecture, and even in academic settings where understanding the properties of three-dimensional objects is necessary.

### Formula of Area of Volume Calculator

The calculator utilizes integral calculus to determine the volume of an object based on the area of its cross-sections. The formulas for calculating volume depend on whether the object is revolved around the x-axis or the y-axis:

Volume of Revolution Around the x-axis:

• Volume = π ∫[a to b] [f(x)]² dx
• f(x): The function defining the shape being revolve around the x-axis.
• a, b: The limits of the interval over which the function is being revolve.
• π: Pi, approximately 3.14159.
• ∫[a to b]: The definite integral from a to b.

Volume of Revolution Around the y-axis:

• Volume = π ∫[c to d] [g(y)]² dy
• g(y): The function defining the shape being revolve around the y-axis.
• c, d: The limits of the interval over which the function is being revolve.
• π: Pi, approximately 3.14159.
• ∫[c to d]: The definite integral from c to d.

Steps to Calculate Volume:

1. Set Up the Integral: Substitute the function and the limits of integration into the appropriate formula based on the axis of revolution.
2. Evaluate the Integral: Perform the integration within the given limits to find the volume.

### Example of Area of Volume Calculator

Consider calculating the volume of a solid obtained by revolving the function f(x) = x^2 around the x-axis from x = 0 to x = 1:

• Volume = π ∫[0 to 1] (x^2)² dx = π ∫[0 to 1] x^4 dx
• Evaluating this integral yields a volume of π/5 units³.
