In my Cal 2 class we learned the disc method to rotate an area around an axis to obtain a volume. However we only rotated a function around either the x axis or y axis. Lets say I take the function y=x(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); ^{2}and y=x from the interval 0 to 1 and I want to rotate the area between these functions around the line y=x, can this be done? My teacher said something about tranforming the equations into standard form but also said we are not looking at these types of problem in my course.
