In this two-lesson series, we'll learn how to find the volumes of figures described by different functions. To do this, we'll use a definite integral to add up an infinite number of either horizontal or vertical cross-sections.

In addition to learning this technique and getting an explanation of how and why it works, you'll also go through examples of how to use this approach to calculate the volume of an object described by the intersection of different curves.

Taught by Professor Edward Burger, this series comes from a comprehensive Calculus course. This course and others are available from Thinkwell, Inc. The full course can be found at http://www.thinkwell.com/student/product/calculus. The full course covers limits, derivatives, implicit differentiation, integration or antidifferentiation, L'Hopital's Rule, functions and their inverses, improper integrals, integral calculus, differential calculus, sequences, series, differential equations, parametric equations, polar coordinates, vector calculus and a variety of other AP Calculus, College Calculus and Calculus II topics.
