This worksheet is intended to demonstrate the Calculus I or AP Calculus AB concept of calculating a volume of known cross section.
Note that all the purple dots in the Graphics1 window are sliders. They don't snap to "clean" values as well as one may like, but precise computation is not the primary goal of the simulation. If they don't click/drag smoothly, consider selecting one of them and using the arrow keys on a keyboard to adjust values.
You may enter functions into the input fields or just drag the existing graphs in the Graphics1 window.
Use of this simulation for scenarios in which human life is at stake is strictly prohibited.
