Illustrating the Shell Method
Course Topic(s): One-Variable Calculus | Integration, Applications
Java applet allows the user to visualize the method of cylindrical shells for finding the volume of a solid formed by revolving a specific region about the \(y\)-axis. The region is formed by two fixed curves of functions in terms of the \(x\) variable. The applet allows the user to dynamically interact with the total volume, a specific shell, or a discrete number of shells. The user interacts with the 3D rendering with fluid mouse motions.
