Assuming the region of interest is from x=0 to x=3 (unless something is specified, there is no solution), the solution on the TI-89 is found by placing the following on the entry line and pressing ENTER:
where S=integral operator
I get this formula by dividing the volume of interest into an "infinite" number of annular "disks" getting the areas of each "disk" as the difference between the parabolic curve and the straight line curve using the usual area formula for a circle. Summing up all "disk" areas times dx, the thickness of each disk leads to the above integral. The answer should be 98.9601685881 cubic units, barring any goofs.

  1. The intersection points of the line y=x, and the parabola y=x^2-2x are (0,0) and (3,3).
  2. Calculate the volume generated by the rotation of the arc of parabola around the line y=4, between the intersection points (0,0) and (3,3).
  3. Calculate the volume of the truncated cone generated by the rotation of the segment of the line y=x about the line y=4. Use plane geometry mensuration formulas.
  4. Subtract the volume of the cone from the volume generated by the arc of parabola.

2001 daewoo lanos Do the timing marks on the camshafts need to meet at every rotation of the crankshaft, or every other. What is the coil order for the spark plug wires

The camshaft marks will line up at every other rotation of the crankshaft. The crank turns two revolutions for every one revolution of the camshaft.

The coil order-do you mean the firing order? It is 1-3-4-2. Cylinders 1 & 4 share one coil. Cylinders 2 & 3 share the other coil. On the coil pack, #1 is to the outside, then # 4 inward of #1. On the other coil, # 3 is to the outside, and # 2 is inward of # 3. (These should be marked or identified on the coils.) So looking at the coil pack, it will be 1-4-2-3. But the firing order is 1-3-4-2, as all 4 cylinder engines are.

How to calculate the volume of a oval shaped spher

The volume of a solid of revolution can be calculated by making use of some methods of integral calculus. For that you will need the exact equation of the the surface that limits the solid. Nothing you can do on a calculator.
However for the spheroids there exit formulas you can use on a calculator.
  • For an ellipsoid
If a, b, c are the lengths of the semiaxes (length of semiaxis=half the length of the axis)

  • For an oblate spheroid
An oblate spheroid is the solid of revolution formed by the rotation of an ellipse about its minor axis (here an image of the cross section from Wikipedia).



  • For a prolate spheroid
A prolate spheroid is the solid of revolution formed by the rotation of an ellipse about its major axis

Need to set the timer properly. No instructions to follow. Want lights to come on at 6PM and off at 6AM. the timer has red and black pegs on the timer, HEL:P

Experiment with the timer.
Hook up the lights and timer. And read resource link below.
Put the trippers on the dial. Put red at 6pm and black at 6am.
Then manually rotate the dial two revolutions.
Turn the override knob to different setting, and then manually rotate the dial two revolutions.
Watch what the lights do as you rotate timer dial.
Then rotate dial two revolutions until current time lines up with stationary arrowhead located on inner dial.
The clock motor located inside timer rotates the dial, and trippers move small switch that turns lights on-and-off.

Formula of regular solid

There isn't a single formula for solids of different shapes. For a right solid with a rectangular base - volume is base area x height Similarly for cylinder with a circular base - volume = base area x height (base area in this case is Pi x radius2). For a sphere - volume = 4/3 x Pi x radius3

We cannot setting the timing mark of the toyota rav 4

if your talking about the timing belt then the bottom crank pulley should have a cut out in it to match to a mark just around the top of the crank pulley around the centre. The cam pulley being the top large one has a hole just above the bolt. That should be directly up and if you get a mirror and look through the hole you will see a cut out. make sure it is lined with this. put the belt on, tension the belt, then put the crankshaft bolt back in and rotate the motor via that bolt and a spanner 2 full revolutions so you can make sure the pistons and valaves dont touch. if it gets very hard to turn STOP!!!!! do not push it if its not going any further, you will damage your motor. good luck.

Timing OK?

You did it the right way. If you tried to make a full cam revolution you would have hit the pistons with the valves. Put the lower timing cover and crank pulley back on. If the cam marks are aligned right and the mark on the lower timing cover lines up with the mark on the crank pulley, you're good to go.
