## Volume of solids of revolution[edit]

Recall that the volume of a solid can be found by where is the *cross-sectional area* and is the *depth* of the solid, which is perpendicular to the cross-sectional area.

Similarly, the volume of solids with circular cross sections can be calculated by

- rotating a curve about an axis (generally or axis)
- integrating to sum the areas of the slices of circles

Since the area of a circle is , then the integral to evaluate the volume of a solid generated by revolving it around the -axis is

Notice this is a sum of areas of the "slices" of circular cross sections of the solid, i.e. .

## Approximate integration[edit]
