It's a surface of revolution, so yes, there is a formula (method of cylindrical shells).

how does the formula for volume of a torus work.

is there a proof with integration??

Hi brandy!

Yes, slice it into horizontal rings (

could you use an ellipse?

uhhh?

ah! got you!

yes, you can use

if you slice it into horizontal rings, you just need to know the width of the polygon at each height …

and if you use vertical discs, you just need to know the height of the polygon at each width

so all you need is the x,y positions ???

can you explain how this works??

keep in mind i know nothing AT ALL.
