Calculus

Key Topics: Application of Definite Integrals - Determining Volume of a Region

In this real world application, students will use integration to find the volume of the Orion Crew Module - NASA's newest spacecraft.

Students will
  • use integration to find the volume of a solid generated by a region, R;
  • determine the equation of a circle using the standard form and the general form;
  • determine the equation of a line using the point-slope form; and
  • solve a system of equations with three equations and three unknowns.
