For a given function f(x)=x, if we rotate this function from [0,1] around the x-axis, we'll have a cone.... why can't I find its surface area by adding the perimeter of all the circunferences from [0,1] with radius = f(x)?Something like 2*pi∫xdx? The formulas says we have to do 2*pi∫x*√(i+y'²)dx .....(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
