The solid S is generated by moving a straight edge so that it is always parallel to a fixed plane P. It is
constrained to pass through a circle C and a line segment L. The circle C, which forms a base for S,
has radius a and the line segment L is distance d from C. Both C and L are perpendicular to P and sit
on P in such a way that the perpendicular C at its centre O bisects L.

A drinking glass having the form of a right circular cylinder of radius a and height h, is filled with
water. The glass is slowly tilted over, spilling water out of it, until it reaches the position where the
waters surface bisects the base of the glass. Figure 1 shows this position.
In Figure 1, AB is a diameter of the circular base with centre C, O is the lowest point on the base, and
D is the point where the waters surface touches the rim of the glass.
Figure 2 shows a crosssection of the tilted glass parallel to its base. The centre of this circular section
is C' and EFG shows the water level. The section cuts the lines CD and OD of Figure 1 in F and H
respectively.
Figure 3 shows the section COD of the tilted glass.

i. The diagram shows the area A between the smooth curve y = f(x), a s x s a, and the x axis.
(Note that f(x) > 0 for a s x s a and f(a) = f(a) = 0). The area A is rotated about the line
x = s (where s > a) to generate the volume V. This volume is to be found by slicing A into
thin vertical strips, rotating these to obtain cylindrical shells, and adding the shells. Two
