determine the volume and surface area obtained by rotating the area
i know how to obtain the volume but i am confused on how to obtain the area, i have the solutions but i want to learn how to do it i know that the area of the rectangle is 1500 and the semicircle is 353.42 so the total area is 1146.57 i know that the rectangle x bar is 15, y bar is 25, so xbar * area = 22500 and ybar*area=37500 i know that the semicircle x bar is 23.63, y bar is 30, so xbar * area = 8351.3 and ybar*area= 10602.6 so total xbar area is 14148.6 and ybar area 26897.4 now volume on ybar is 2*pi*26897.4=169001.35 and volume on xbar is 2*pi*14148.6=88898.7 but i see to obtain the area on on the x axis is A= 2*pi*(112.5+1413.7+237.5+1250+1500) and y is 2*pi*(450+450+942.47+150+450) my question is where did these numbers inside the parenthesis came from, i would appreciate if someone could explain to me how these numbers were obtained thanks in advance
