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:**

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