You are to determine the volume of the vase pictured here. The photograph on the right shows the construction of the vase and that its height is 50 cm.
Unlike practice problems from textbooks, most real life problems involve "messy" coefficients. Even if the function is easy to antidifferentiate, the arithmetic is usually tedious.
In this lesson you will learn to...
You may already know how to perform some of these. We have provided links to refresh your memory if needed.

Use the applet
to find the coordinate values for the edge of the vase



Now that you have coordinates from the applet,
