Items tagged with volume


I am taking an intermediate mathematics course. Now we are heading towards the finals and I have started to review all the topics we have been visiting during this semester.

Now I came across an excercise I cannot solve, taking into consideration what our lectures looks like and topics on the list my best bet is using lagrange multiplie method to optimize a multivariable function with constraints.

The task gives a shape that is drawn within the circle given by the equation: x^2+y^2=2.

The shape is a hexagon with 2 vertecies on the y-axsis +- the radius 2, the other 4 vertecies are the following [+-x,+-y].

I´m told that this hexagon is spinned around the y-axis to form a solid sylinder with 2 cones. The problem is to choose both radius and hight of the cylinder in order to maximize the volume.

The first problem that I dont know how i can plot this in maple, I would like to plot both the 2d hexagon and the solid spinned around the y-axsis

Also I´m not to confident what the constraint should look like.

I know how to use the lagrange multiplier by hand and can apply that inside maple, however I would like to use this opportunity to get to know the power of maple functionality more in detail.

The link provoided is an image of the hexagon, i didnt find out how to use image tags.

I saw a presentation Calculus 1 -- I'm pretty sure it was Maple -- that showed how to set up a volume of solid of revolutionvisually rotated the region and looked at it from different points of view.

Is there someplace I could go to find out ho0w to do that.  I am new and in experienced in using Maple.

Thanks in advance.

The downloaded worksheet below displays 3 points on the unit sphere which define a solid angle with a triangular face. The sides of the solid angle's are red arcs on the surface of the sphere and red radii which outline the planar sides within the sphere.

Three questions:

1. Is there a way to make the surfaces of the solid triangle more apparent by filling them with color?

2. Is there a way to calculate the area of the face on the surface of the sphere?

3. Is there a way to calculate the volume of the solid triangle?

   Hi there,

   How can we pl0t the volume or surface of revolution of cardioid r=1-cos(\theta) about  polar axis or the vertical axis in maple14.

 Any help will be appreciated.


How can I plot the volume of revolution of the region between the curves y=ln(x) and y=-ln(x)on the interval [1,e]

around the y-axis.please specify the command. I used the command: VolumeOfRevolution(ln(x),-ln(x), x=1..e, scaling=constrained,axis=vertical,output=plot). But this command only plots the revolution of the curves not the region between them.

Best Regards

Of course, with Maple.

How can I plot a volume (many surfaces) in X,Y, Z axis where X,Y,Z are functions in 4 variables (a,b,c,d), and the domain for the 4 variables are 

-90<=a>=90, -10<=b>=10, -12<=c>=12, -90<=d>=0,


X := proc (a, b, c, d) options operator, arrow; 324.*cos(b)*sin(c)*cos(d)+324.*sin(b)*sin(d)+323.5*cos(b)*sin(c) end procX := proc (a, b, c, d) options operator, arrow; 324.*cos(b)*sin(c)*cos(d)+324.*sin(b)*sin(d)+323.5*cos(b)*sin(c) end proc

I want to find  the volume contribution x^2+y^2=z and x^2+y^2=2x over xy with Maple.

I was thinking about the area problem, yet again, and found myself asking the question: why must we go through such elaborate means to get Maple to generate a plot of the region between two (or more curves)? I use the word elaborate to describe any process that would might become overwhelming, for, say a student, to go through to accomplish a task. Anyone with the most basic of backgrounds can understand the area problem, but yet, such an individual might not find it a trivial...

We have a task her that I hope someone can help us with.

The task is to build a steel frame to a tent.  The frame consists of four legs with X length and a rectangle on the top with sides Y and Z.  The lengths are measured in meters.
The volume V=X*Y*Z of the tent has to be 32 m3.  The task is to create the tent so that the total length L of the pipe is minimized to the shortest.


Thx for all fast help :D


1. a)given ∫(0..4)∫(√x..2) of sin(pi)*y^3 dydx, graph the region, R, in the xy plane.

b)Write double integral which reverses the order of integration and then evaluate.


2. Find centroid of cardioid of region enclosed by cardioid r=1-sin(theta)


3. a)Graph wedge cut from cylinder x^2+y^2=9, and by planes, z=-y, and z=0, and above the xy plane.

b)Write the integral which finds the volume of the wedge and evaluate it.

The new VolumeOfRevolution command in the Student[Calculus1] package has lots of nice features for controlling the output (Riemann sum, 3D plot, animation, inert integral, numerical approximation, ...).

The default colors for the plot are not very appealing. Not only is the pink easily washed out by a projector in a moderately light room, but the detail is missing. To illustrate, consider

VolumeOfRevolution(2-x^2, x, x=0..1, output=plot );

How to find the volume of the intersection of the sphere {(x, y, z): x^2+y^2+z^2 <= R^2 } and
the set {(x, y, z): |x| <= a, |y| <= a } under the assumptions R > a*sqrt(2) and a > 0?

I have the following problem. Two formulas in three variables represent the costs of algorithms. I want a visual of their ratio, so that I can "see" how their relative performance varies. Here is a simple example. I can analyze this example analytically, but you can't always do that.

R := sum(binomial(n+i*d,n),i=1..k-1);
S := binomial(n+k*d,n);
f := unapply(R/S, n, d, k);
A := Array(1..10,1..10,1..10,f,datatype=float[8]);

I want a 3-dimensional rendering...

Ive tried several commands, but none of them will give me a response

Here are the points im working with:

u = (2, -3, 1), v = (-4, 3, 3), w = (2, 4, 6)

And here are the several commands ive tried to use, with "with(LinearAlgebra), with(geom3d)" implemented before:


volume([2, -3, 1], [-4, 3, 3], [2, 4, 6], parallelepiped)

> with(plots, display);
> volume;
display(parallelepiped, axes = normal, scaling = constrained, orientation = ...
