A glass cup is created by revolving R about the x-axis where x and y are measured in centimeters. a. how much liquid can the cup hold? b. what volume of glass is needed to create the cup? Give your answer in cm^3 c. The final step in creating the cup is to cover it in a liquid protective coating. If the coating will cover every side of the cup (top,bottom, inside, and outside), and 1 milliliter of coating can cover 10cm^2 area, how much of the liquid protective coating is needed for the cup? Give your answer in mL.

Re: Area/Volume Problem with a cup

This is the region R to be revolved about the x-axis to create the glass cup:

a) Using the disk method, how would you set up an integral representing the capacity of the cup?

b) Using the disk and washer methods, how would you find the volume of glass used to make the cup?

c) What do you think is a good strategy for finding the complete surface area of the cup?

The top is a circle - a circle. The outside is a cone with the top cut off (from 1 to 10). The inside is the difficult part.
