Student[Calculus1][SurfaceOfRevolutionTutor] - demonstrate surface of revolution

 Calling Sequence SurfaceOfRevolutionTutor(f, var=a..b)

Parameters

 f - (optional) algebraic expression in one variable var a..b - (optional) interval var - (optional) variable

Description

 • The SurfaceOfRevolutionTutor(f) command launches a tutor interface that plots and computes the area of the surface of revolution generated by rotating f on the interval a..b around the horizontal or vertical axis, or around a line parallel to one of the axes.
 If f is not specified, SurfaceOfRevolutionTutor uses a default function.
 If a..b is not specified, SurfaceOfRevolutionTutor uses a default interval.
 If var is not specified, SurfaceOfRevolutionTutor uses a default variable.
