Lecture no. 8 from the course: Understanding Calculus II: Problems, Solutions, and Tips
Taught by Professor Bruce H. Edwards | 29 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Mathematics Courses
Continue your exploration of the power of integral calculus. First, review arc length computations. Then, calculate the areas of surfaces of revolution. Close by surveying the concept of work, answering questions such as, how much work does it take to lift an object from Earth’s surface to 800 miles in space?
