# Arc Length and Sector Area

You should know with these terms relating to the parts of a circle. The centre of a circle is the point which is equidistant from all points on the circle. A radius of a circle a straight line joining the centre of a circle to any point on the circumference. A minor arc is an […]

Degree Measurement of Angles One full revolution makes an angle of $360^{\circ}$, and the angle on a straight line is $180^{\circ}$. Therefore, one degree, $1^{\circ}$, can be defined as $\dfrac{1}{360}$ of one full revolution. For greater accuracy we define one minute, $1’$, as $\dfrac{1}{60}$ of one degree and one second, $1^{\prime \prime}$, as $\dfrac{1}{60}$ of […]
If the region bounded by the upper function $y_{upper}=f(x)$ and the lower funciton $y_{lower}=g(x)$, and the lines $x=a$ and $x=b$ is revolved about the $x$-axis, then its volume of revolution is given by: \begin{align} \displaystyle V &= \int_{a}^{b}{\Big([f(x)]^2 – [g(x)]^2\Big)}dx \\ &= \int_{a}^{b}{\Big(y_{upper}^2 – y_{lower}^2\Big)}dx \end{align} Example 1 Find the volume of revolution […]
