Autograph Video 50 – Further Volumes of Revolution

In the final Autograph Video of 2011 we take a look at some of the lovely shapes you can make using Volumes of Revolution. We hint at how it is possible to derive the formulae for some common 3D objects (for more on this see Mr Barton’s “Autograph Activities” textbooks!), how you can create volumes around the y-axis, and finally we look at some of the fascinating shapes you can form with areas between curves and lines. Plenty to keep you busy until the end of the year.
