The Area of a Surface Generated by Revolving a Graph about Any Line
Goins, Edray Herber; Washington, Talitha M.
PRIMUS, v23 n2 p121-132 2013
We discuss a general formula for the area of the surface that is generated by a graph [t[subscript 0], t[subscript 1] [right arrow] [the set of real numbers][superscript 2] sending t [maps to] (x(t), y(t)) revolved around a general line L : Ax + By = C. As a corollary, we obtain a formula for the area of the surface formed by revolving y = f(x) around the line y = mx + k. (Contains 6 figures.)
