The heads can be represented by a general oblate spheroid described by equation (x

^{2}+ y

^{2})/a

^{2}+ z

^{2}/c

^{2}= 1.

I can compute the partial surface area for z=XXX to YYY by taking the surface of revolution about the z-axis (ie for a vertical tank).

However how can I calculate the partial surface area for x=XXX to YYY?

I am not looking for a closed form equation, just something I can numerically integrate.
