7.3 VOLUMES WITH KNOWN CROSS SECTIONS VOLUMES WITH KNOWN CROSS SECTIONS A solid has as its base the circle x2 + y2 = 9, and all cross sections parallel to the y-axis are squares. Find the volume of the solid. SOLIDS WITH KNOWN CROSS SECTIONS If A(x) is the area of a cross section of a solid and A(x) is continuous on [a, b], then the volume of the solid from x = a to x = b is b V A( x)dx a VOLUMES WITH KNOWN CROSS SECTIONS A solid has as its base the circle x2 + y2 = 9, and all cross sections parallel to the y-axis are squares.
