Is it possible to plot the solid generated by revolving a curve about a line?
For example, I want to see what kind of solid is generated from this question:
Use shells to find the solid generated from the region in the 1st quadrant bounded by $y=x$ and $y=x^2$, revolved about $x=-1$.
The volume of the solid is $\frac{\pi}{2}$. How can I view this solid? I checked the [sage calculus tutorial](http://www.sagemath.org/calctut/) for clues but couldn't find any.trkSun, 27 Feb 2011 08:54:58 +0100https://ask.sagemath.org/question/7972/
