Solids of Revolution
Updated 11 Apr 2016
This script prompts the user for two functions y1=f1(x) and y2=f2(x) and rotates the area between the two curves around a user-defined axis. Plotted is the region between the two curves and the 3-D solid generated by revolving the region around the axis. Caluclated are the volume and surface area of the resudlting solid, and the arc length of each curve.
