00:00:00.970 --> 00:00:08.680
A right circular cylinder and an oblique circular cylinder have the same radius and height as seen in the given figure.
00:00:09.140 --> 00:00:14.190
What does Cavalieri’s principle tell us about the volume of the two shapes?
00:00:15.590 --> 00:00:18.520
Then work out the volume of the oblique cylinder.
00:00:18.850 --> 00:00:20.650
Give your answer in terms of 𝜋.
00:00:22.350 --> 00:00:38.420
Cavalieri’s principle tells us that if the cross sections of the figure have equal areas at all spaces and the altitude of both the solids are the same, then the volumes are equal.
00:00:39.630 --> 00:00:45.830
To work out the volume of the oblique cylinder, we only have to work out the volume of the right cylinder.
00:00:46.730 --> 00:00:55.350
The volume of a right cylinder is equal to 𝜋 times the radius squared times the height of the cylinder.
00:00:55.970 --> 00:01:00.700
For us, that’s 𝜋 times one squared times five.
00:01:01.530 --> 00:01:05.450
We’re leaving everything in terms of 𝜋, so we don’t need to estimate that.
00:01:06.370 --> 00:01:10.100
One squared is one, times five.
00:01:10.570 --> 00:01:12.480
One times five equals five.
00:01:13.050 --> 00:01:14.540
And we aren’t getting rid of the 𝜋.
00:01:15.500 --> 00:01:17.710
So we’ll leave it as five 𝜋.
00:01:18.910 --> 00:01:23.220
The volume of both of the cylinders in this image is five 𝜋.
