umm guys, i really need your help on this one. I had this math subejct before wherein i used the book, if i remember correctly, The Calculus 7 (TC7) by Louis Leithold. I saw some graphings in this book, also some where there were this graphs of functions revolved either along the x or y axis. I understand that this refers to volume produced by revolving then being solved by integration.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

What i want to know guys is how do you do such graphing in the computer, such like graphing a parabola and revolving it along the x-axis. I looked at the preface of the book and said it used mathematica and adobe illustrator, but i can't seem to be able to do it, since im a newbie.

Anyway, can anyone of you recomemd a program or it can be a link to a tutorial to accomplish this? Thanks. :)
