Chapter 7: Additional Applications of Integration
Section 7.3: The Theorems of Pappus
Use the first theorem of Pappus to find the volume of the solid of revolution formed when the plane region bounded by the x-axis and the graphs of y=x2 and x=1, is rotated about the x-axis.
(See Example 5.2.1.)
The area of the plane region is ∫01x2 ⅆx=13.
Since the rotation is about the y-axis, the radius of rotation for the centroid is
Hence, the centroid traverses a distance of 2 π3/10=3 π/5, so by the first theorem of Pappus, the volume of the solid of revolution is 3 π/5⋅1/3=π/5, as found in Example 5.2.1.

Apply the first theorem of Pappus
Multiply the circumference of the circle whose radius is y&conjugate0; by the area A.
2 π Ybar⋅A = 15⁢π
