## Still Learning Calculus: Volumes of Revolution! Fun Times! Haha

On our last homework we were learning about measuring volume by rotating small sections around the x or y axis. Here I am demonstrating use of what they call the “Shell Method.” It seems a little easier to me than the Disk or Washer method. But then again, I guess it depends on the problem! lol

## More Calculus Homework! :)

I thought it would be fun to add the rocket as my projectile, and then I felt compelled to add the moon, Earth and Sun! hahaha. We were working on definite integrals and finding distance traveled and displacement.
