Hi everyone! I have two questions, one about area of surface of revolution and another is about arc length...(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I really fail to do this two question despite many times of trying so I hope someone can help me

1. Find the area of the surface of revolution generated by revolving the arc of the cardioid " x = 2 cos θ - cos 2θ, y = 2 sin θ - sin 2θ " about the X-axis.

2. A warehouse is 75m long and 40m wide. A cross-section of the roof is the inverted catenary y = 31 - 10 (e^0.05x + e^-0.05x). Find the number of square metres of roofing in the warehouse. Hint: Find the arc length of the catenary and multiply this by the length of the warehouse.

I would be really grateful if you can help me!
