Finding Volume using Integrals

By Jennifer Moreno, Kelly park

and Albert Lee
Volume - The person that discovered volume was
a man named Archimedes. Archimedes did measure
the volume of things but the eureka moment was
maybe due to his original discovery [concerning
buoyancy], not to sitting in the bathtub and then
running through the streets of Syracuse naked.

Integrals - The principles of integration were

formulated independently by Isaac Newton and
Gottfried Leibniz in the late 17th century, who
thought of the integral as an infinite sum of
rectangles of infinitesimal width.
Definition Of Volume
Let S be a solid that lies between x=a and x=b. If
the cross-sectional area of S in the plane Px,
through x and perpendicular to the x-axis, is A(X),
where A is a continuous function, then the
volume of S is....
Find the volume of the solid obtained by rotating
the region bounded by the given curves about
the specified line.

y=x^3 y=x x≥0 about the x-axis.

Take Action

We took action by simply studying the

subject. As the world grows, there
requires a larger staff in all of STEM.
By studying calculus, we are, in
essence, pursuing a STEM career.
Additionally, presenting our findings to
our peers helps share our knowledge,
thereby spreading awareness to the
scarcity of workers in STEM.
Communicate Ideas
We communicated ideas by sharing our individual
ideas with each other and our peers.
