Let $f(x)=y=\sqrt[3]{3x}.$ Consider the portion of the curve where $0\le y\le 2.$ Find the surface area of the surface generated by revolving the graph of $f(x)$ around the $y\text{-axis}.$
Notice that we are revolving the curve around the $y\text{-axis},$ and the interval is in terms of $y,$ so we want to rewrite the function as a function of y . We get $x=g(y)=\left(1\text{/}3\right){y}^{3}.$ The graph of $g(y)$ and the surface of rotation are shown in the following figure.
We have $g(y)=\left(1\text{/}3\right){y}^{3},$ so ${g}^{\prime}(y)={y}^{2}$ and ${\left({g}^{\prime}(y)\right)}^{2}={y}^{4}.$ Then
Let $u={y}^{4}+1.$ Then $du=4{y}^{3}dy.$ When $y=0,$ $u=1,$ and when $y=2,$ $u=17.$ Then
Let $g(y)=\sqrt{9-{y}^{2}}$ over the interval $y\in \left[0,2\right].$ Find the surface area of the surface generated by revolving the graph of $g(y)$ around the $y\text{-axis}.$
