It is about the function f(x)=Sqr(r^2-x^2) d) for the restriction -r<=x<=r , calculate the volume and compare it to common equations in your equation booklet. i have done that, it gives the normal equation for the volume of a sphere. e) now its restricting the x-axis with -r<=x<=a. For the volume i get this answer: ((r^2)a-(1/3)(a^3))-(2/3)(r^3) BUT, it asks me for common equations again, from my booklet. but neither in the internet nor in my booklet im able to find anything similar. Additionally, it does not make any sense to me, what would this equation calculate? Is there anything or is this just a trick question?

Are you in calculus, perhaps studying surfaces of revolution???
