Three-dimensional Solids
« on: April 19, 2019, 11:39:40 AM »
If you create a vase that is 10cm tall, with its radius at any height from its base equal to four centimetres plus the square of that height, I could work out the volume of that vase with just a pencil and paper.

Sadly, I can't re-plaster my kitchen and need to get someone in to do that.

I wish it were the other way round.

Hey, I can't do either. Think yourself blessed!
I apologise, in advance.

Yeah, that sucks if you spent all that time on integration and learnt nothing. Bloody schools.

Of course you can re-plaster your kitchen - just have a go!
