Homework Help: Need help, can someone explain cylindrical shell method for volume?

  1. Nov 27, 2006 #1
    im stuck and my book doesn't explain much on how to get the volume of a shape by the cylindrical shell method. What i really need is to show how to get the general formula of a volume of a sphere and a cone using cylindrical shells.
