##### volume by cross-sections

 Calculus Tutor: None Selected Time limit: 1 Day

a square of of side length s lies in a plane perpendicular to a line L. one vertex of the square lies on l. as this square moves a distance h along l, the square turns one revolution about l to generate a corkscrew-like column with square cross-section. a)find the volume of the column b)the volume with two turns

volume=area of the cross-section x height of the distance moved by the square along l

sxs=s^2....area of cross section

s^2xh=hs^2

with two turns , the volume will be double=2hs^2

it will be with two turns 2s^2h

sorry...i see there is diffrence btween two turns n x2........................................................

so what will be the answer for two turns? I'm confused

May 15th, 2015

seems before turning, the square has to move....so it will be just one turn(s^2h)x2=2s^2h

sorry!!

=2(s^2h).....................................
