The volume of the solid generated by its revolution round the axis of y, or the base of the curve is

V = a sdy (2a x)' = 7 a? [de (1 + cos 0)'; which taken from 0 = 0 to 0 = 77, and doubled, gives as the whole volume of the solid generated

V = 37°a?.
If the curve revolve round the axis of x,

V = n sya dx = = a sdo e sin ; which taken from 0 = 0 to 0 = 7, gives as the volume of the whole solid generated

V = + (m" – 4) a'.

This is the part of the surface included within the positive axes, and if we multiply it by 4 we have 27 r x as the surface of a zone of the sphere, the height of which is x : it is therefore equal to the corresponding zone of the circumscribing cylinder. The whole surface of the sphere is 4 7 po2 or four times the area of a great circle.

(2) The axes of two equal right circular cylinders intersect at right angles, find the area of the surface of the one which is intercepted by the other. The equations are

x + x = a, e + y = 0;

the limits of , being 0 and a cos , those of O being 0 and In. Therefore S = a fotr (1 -- sin 6) = a* (1 - 1).

The area of the surface of the octant of the sphere is b a”; and therefore the area of the surface of the octant which is not included in the cylinder is equal to a’, or the square of the radius of the sphere. If the sphere be pierced by two equal and similar cylinders, the area of the non-intercepted surface is sa', or twice the square of the diameter of the sphere.

This is the celebrated Florentine enigma which was proposed by Vincent Viviani as a challenge to the mathematicians of his day in the following form :

“ Inter venerabilia olim Græciæ monumenta extat adhuc, perpetuo quidem duraturum, Templum augustissimum ichnographia circulari AlME GEOMETRIE dicatum, quod testudine intus perfecte hemisphærica operitur: sed in hac fenestrarum quatuor æquales areæ (circum ac supra basin hemisphæræ ipsius dispositarum) tali configuratione, amplitudine, tantaque industria, ac ingenii acumine sunt extructæ, ut his detractis superstes curva Testudinis superficies, pretioso opere musivo ornata, tetragonismi vere geometrici sit capax.

If a solid be generated by the motion of a plane parallel to itself, the surface may be found by a method similar to that used for finding the volume. If u be the periphery of the generating plane, s the arc of the curve made by a plane perpendicular to the generating plane

S = suds.

(5) Under the same circumstances as in Ex. (11) of the last section, to find the surface of the intercepted solid.

If : be the arc of the circle passing through O and perpendicular to PQ, the area of the element PQpq is lds, and the area of the surface AOB is sids. Now l = 2p cosec a = 2 (a– xo)? cosec a,

therefore S = 2a cosec a ("dx = 2a cosec a ; and the whole surface is 16 a cosec a.

When x = 0, $ = 0 and C = a, therefore

S = 2a tan a {a – (a? – xo)}; and the whole convex surface is 2 a' tan a.
