Currently 4.0/5 Stars.
This video explains finding volume of solids using the cylindrical shell method. It also has some great images and animations of what graphs actually look like when rotated around an axis. The video is just a collection of examples of finding volumes of solids using the shell method. Very useful and practical. The different types of finding volumes (disks, washers, and shells) are also compared at the end.
