Implicit Differentiation Find y if e + x y = sin ( y ) + 11x . Remember y = y ( x ) here, so products/quotients of x and y will use the product/quotient rule and derivatives of y will use the chain rule. The trick is to differentiate as normal and every time you differentiate a y you tack on a y (from the chain rule). After differentiating solve for y .

If the curves intersect then the area of each portion must be found individually. Here are som sketches of a couple possible situations and formulas for a couple of possible cases.

Volumes of Revolution : The two main formulas are V = A ( x ) dx and V = A ( y ) dy . Here is

Limits: x/y of right/bot ring to x/y of left/top ring Limits : x/y of inner cyl. to x/y of outer cyl. Horz. Axis use f ( x ) , Vert. Axis use f ( y ) , Horz. Axis use f ( y ) , Vert.

These are only a few cases for horizontal axis of rotation. If axis of rotation is the x-axis use the y = a 0 case with a = 0 . For vertical axis of rotation ( x = a > 0 and x = a 0 ) interchange x and y to get appropriate formulas.

Improper Integral An improper integral is an integral with one or more infinite limits and/or d scontinuous integrands. Integral is called convergent if the limit exists and has a finite value and divergent if the limit doesnt exist or has infinite value. This is typically a Calc II topic.

With surface area you may have to substitute in for the x or y depending on your choice of ds to match the differential in the ds. With parametric and polar you will always need to substitute.
