How it works ?
Enter any UPPER FUNCTION (labeled upper(x)).
Enter any LOWER FUNCTION (labeled lower(x)).
Enter your lower and upper limits of integration (“a” and “b”, respectively).
Slide the FILLING slider all the way to the left. For this solid, note how cross sections parallel to the yAxis are rhombuses with one side lying in the base. This side has length = upper(x) – lower(x).
Note you can also change this rhombus by using the ANG slider (to change an angle).
You can move this rhombus by sliding the MoveMe slider.
You can modify any of these parameters (functions, limits) at any time.
