Question The diagram shows a shaded region bounded by the y-axis, the line y = 1 and the part of the  curve  y = x2 + 4x + 3 for which x 2.

i.
Express y=x2+4x+3 in the form y=(x+a)2+b, where a and b are constants. Hence, for x 2,  express x in terms of y.

ii.       Hence, showing all necessary working, find the volume obtained when the shaded region is rotated through 360O about the y-axis.

Solution

i.

We have the expression; We use method of “completing square” to obtain the desired form. We complete the square for the  terms which involve . We have the algebraic formula;  For the given case we can compare the given terms with the formula as below;  Therefore, we can deduce that; Hence, we can write; To complete the square, we can add and subtract the deduced value of ;      Therefore, we can write; Now we express in terms of .   ii.

Expression for the volume of the solid formed when the shaded region under the curve is rotated  completely about the y-axis is; Therefore, for the given case; We have found in (i) that; Hence, for to ;     Rule for integration of is:   Rule for integration of is: Rule for integration of is: Rule for integration of is:
