[Wasn't sure if it was suppose to use the othernumber, just assuming it was talking about long ways]
For the second part of the question, I just used the formulaof V = π r 2 h in which I came up with
V = ( 3.14 ) ( 0.4 × 10 6 m ) 2 ( 2.04 × 10 6 m ) = 1.00 × 10 18 m
Which something doesn't seem correct, or atleast seems oddto me.
Also, I don't know if I'm pushing the amount of questions Ican ask in a single problem, but the next part its asking for the Surface area of an E. Coli cell, and what is the surface to volumeratio of an E. Coli cell?
Which I have no idea, what type of surface area I should usefor a cell, then do I just compare the volume to the surface area,that I got in the previous problem?

The first part seems perfectly reasonable, as does the second part
The problem with your volume might be that its in meters! Itsbest to put volume in c m 3 unless otherwise stated,although the SI unit is cubic meters ( m 3 )
Surface area of a cylinder = 2 π r ( r + h )

Finding volume of solid revolution about x-axis
I'm asked to find the volume of a container of height 13.5 The container is made by rotating y = 1.5 x 2 where 0 x 3 about the axis x = 0.5 (the bottom is flat).
I tried finding the right volume a number of ways, but I believe my most solid attempt so far is this:
I invert the function to get y = 2 3 x .
From this I tried to calculate π 0 3 2 3 x d x which gave me 3 π which I thought was correct, but it wasnt. Plotting this, I realized the height becomes 3 when I integrate the inverted function from 0 to 3, so I thought I should maybe integrate from 0 to 13.5. In that case I get 243 π 4 which is also incorrect. I'm sure I've misinterpreted what it means to rotate the function about the axis x = 0.5

Finding Volume Using Triple Integration
Set up and evaluate a triple integral to find the volume of the region bounded by the paraboloid z = 1 x 2 9 y 2 100 and the xy-plane.
I understand I'm finding the volume of a paraboloid that forms a "dome" over the xy-plane. Moreover, I can see the paraboloid intersects with the xy-plane to form an ellipse given by x 2 9 y 2 100 = 1.
I have tried setting this up using rectangular coordinates but the integral started looking extremely messy. I then tried spherical coordinates but had trouble find the upper bound of ρ. Specifically, I can't seem to successfully translate the rectangular equation z = 1 x 2 9 y 2 100 to a spherical equation and isolate ρ.

Finding the volume of a solid of revolution about the x-axis
Let R be the area laying beneath the curve f ( x ) = 8 x 2 and above the line y = 7. Find the volume of the solid of revolution which is created when R is revolved around the x-axis.
I graphed the functions and found out I have to integrate from -1 to 1. I want to use the disc method, but I don't know how to only get the discs with radii higher than y = 7 and lower than f(x). I thought it would be logical if the radii of the discs would be 8 x 2 7 = 1 x 2 , but this approach gives me the wrong answer when i plug it into the formula.

Finding surface area and volume of a sphere using only Pappus' Centroid Theorem
I wonder if it is possible to derive surface area and volume of a sphere seperately using techniques involving pappus' theorem.
I did some calculation and found out the ratio of surface area and volume. Here is my work,
1. My key observation is finding out that the centroid of a semidisk of raidus r is also the centroid of a semicircle of raidus 2 r / 3 when the centers coincide. (By "centers" I mean the centers of full circle and disc induced by half of them.)
2. I sliced the semidisk identical pieces of triangles(infinitely many) and by locating each triangle's centroid I form a semicircle of radius 2 r / 3 which must have the same centroid with semidisk.
3. Then let's say our centroid is located h distance above the center. We still don't know it.
4. Using the theorem, the circular path taken by the centroid of the semidisk times the area of the centroid should give the volume of the sphere of radius r. And similarly, the circular path taken by the same centroid of the semicircle times the arc length of semicircle should give the surface area of a sphere of radius 2r/3.
5. We know that when the radius increases with a proportion, corresponding surface area will also increase with the square of that proportion. Thus, we need to multiply the surface area of sphere of radius 2r/3 by the factor 9/4 to get the surface area of the sphere of radius r.
Here is the calculations,
V = 2 π h π r 2 / 2 = π 2 r 2 h
S = 9 / 4 2 π h π ( 2 r / 3 ) = 3 π 2 r h
Since we don't know h, I simply divide them to cancel it out and get, V / S = r / 3.

Finding the volume of a R 3 triangle
I have a triangle ABC defined with the points A = ( 2.4 , 5.4 , 6 ), B = ( 0 , 1.1 , 3.2 ), C = ( 7.6 , 3 , 0 ).
And I'm asked to find the volume of the solid of R 3 given by the points between the plane that is made by the points of the triangle and the plaze z = 0 (The same points of the triangle with all the z = 0)
I think I should use integrals but I don't know from which regions to do the triple integration.
