EXAMPLE 2 Surface area of a spherical cap A spherical cap is produced when a sphere of radius a is sliced by a horizontal plane that is a vertical distance h below the north pole of the sphere, where 0 … h … 2a (Figure 6.66a). We take the spherical cap to be that part of the sphere above the plane, so that h is the depth of the cap. Show that the area of a spherical cap of depth h cut from a sphere of radius a is 2pah.

SOLUTION To generate the spherical surface, we revolve the curve f 1×2 = 2a2 – x2 on the interval 3-a, a4 about the x-axis (Figure 6.66b). The spherical cap of height h cor- responds to that part of the sphere on the interval 3a -h, a4, for 0 … h … 2a. Noting that f ′1×2 = -x1a2 – x22-1>2, the surface area of the spherical cap of height h is

a – h a dx = 2pah. Simplify and integrate.

It is worthwhile to check this result with three special cases. With h = 2a, we have a complete sphere, so S = 4pa2. The case h = a corresponds to a hemispherical cap, so S = 14pa22>2 = 2pa2. The case h = 0 corresponds to no spherical cap, so S = 0.

The derivation that led to the surface area integral may be used when a curve is revolved about the y-axis (rather than the x-axis). The result is the same integral with x replaced with y.

the volume of the object is important. Animals typically generate heat at a rate proportional to their volume and lose heat at a rate pro- portional to their surface area.

The physical themes in these problems are mass, work, force, and pressure. The common mathematical theme is the use of the slice-and-sum strategy, which always leads to a definite integral.

Density and Mass Density is the concentration of mass in an object and is usually measured in units of mass per volume 1for example, g>cm32. An object with uniform density satisfies the basic relationship

mass = density # volume. When the density of an object varies, this formula no longer holds, and we must appeal to calculus.

In this section, we introduce mass calculations for thin objects that can be viewed as line segments (such as wires or thin bars). The bar shown in Figure 6.69 has a density r that varies along its length. For one-dimensional objects, we use linear density with units of mass per length 1for example, g>cm2. What is the mass of such an object? QUICK CHECK 1 In Figure 6.69, suppose a = 0, b = 3, and the density of the rod in g>cm is r1x2 = 14 – x2. (a) Where is the rod lightest and heaviest? (b) What is the density at the middle of the bar?

We begin by dividing the bar, represented by the interval a … x … b, into n sub- intervals of equal length ∆x = 1b – a2>n (Figure 6.70). Let xk* be any point in the kth subinterval, for k = 1, c, n. The mass of the kth segment of the bar mk is approxi- mately the density at xk

* multiplied by the length of the interval, or mk ≈ r1xk*2∆x. So the approximate mass of the entire bar is

The exact mass is obtained by taking the limit as n S ∞ and as ∆x S 0, which produces a definite integral.

➤ Note that the units of the integral work out as they should: r has units of mass per length and dx has units of length, so r1x2 dx has units of mass.

➤ Another interpretation of the mass integral is that mass equals the average value of the density multiplied by the length of the bar b – a.

EXAMPLE 1 Mass from variable density A thin 2-m bar, represented by the interval 0 … x … 2, is made of an alloy whose density in units of kg>m is given by r1x2 =11 + x22. What is the mass of the bar? SOLUTION The mass of the bar in kilograms is

m = L b

a r1x2 dx = L20 11 + x22 dx = ax + x33 b ` 20 = 143 .

QUICK CHECK 2 A thin bar occupies the interval 0 … x … 2 and has a density in kg>m of r1x2 = 11 + x22. Using the minimum value of the density, what is a lower bound for the mass of the object? Using the maximum value of the density, what is an upper bound for the mass of the object?

Work Work can be described as the change in energy when a force causes a displacement of an object. When you carry a basket of laundry up a flight of stairs or push a stalled car, you apply a force that results in the displacement of an object, and work is done. If a constant force F displaces an object a distance d in the direction of the force, the work done is the force multiplied by the distance:

work = force # distance. It is easiest to use metric units for force and work. A newton 1N2 is the force required to give a 1-kg mass an acceleration of 1 m>s2. A joule 1J2 is 1 newton-meter 1N@m2, the work done by a 1-N force over a distance of 1 m.

Calculus enters the picture with variable forces. Suppose an object is moved along the x-axis by a variable force F that is directed along the x-axis (Figure 6.71). How much work is done in moving the object between x = a and x = b? Once again, we use the slice-and-sum strategy.

The interval 3a, b4 is divided into n subintervals of equal length ∆x = 1b – a2>n. We let xk

* be any point in the kth subinterval, for k = 1, c, n. On that subinterval, the force is approximately constant with a value of F 1xk*2. Therefore, the work done in mov- ing the object across the kth subinterval is approximately F 1xk*2∆x 1force # distance2. Summing the work done over each of the n subintervals, the total work over the interval 3a, b4 is approximately

W ≈ a n

k = 1 F 1xk*2∆x.

This approximation becomes exact when we take the limit as n S ∞ and ∆x S 0. The total work done is the integral of the force over the interval 3a, b4 (or, equivalently, the net area under the force curve in Figure 6.71).

6.7 Physical Applications 461

An application of force and work that is easy to visualize is the stretching and com- pression of a spring. Suppose an object is attached to a spring on a frictionless horizontal surface; the object slides back and forth under the influence of the spring. We say that the spring is at equilibrium when it is neither compressed nor stretched. It is convenient to let x be the position of the object, where x = 0 is the equilibrium position (Figure 6.72).

DEFINITION Work The work done by a variable force F moving an object along a line from x = a to x = b in the direction of the force is

W = L b

a F 1×2 dx.

QUICK CHECK 3 Explain why the sum of the work over n subintervals is only an approxi- mation of the total work.

According to Hooke’s law, the force required to keep the spring in a compressed or stretched position x units from the equilibrium position is F 1×2 = kx, where the positive spring constant k measures the stiffness of the spring. Note that to stretch the spring to a position x 7 0, a force F 7 0 (in the positive direction) is required. To compress the spring to a position x 6 0, a force F 6 0 (in the negative direction) is required (Figure 6.73). In other words, the force required to displace the spring is always in the direction of the displacement.

EXAMPLE 2 Compressing a spring Suppose a force of 10 N is required to stretch a spring 0.1 m from its equilibrium position and hold it in that position.

a. Assuming that the spring obeys Hooke’s law, find the spring constant k. b. How much work is needed to compress the spring 0.5 m from its equilibrium position? c. How much work is needed to stretch the spring 0.25 m from its equilibrium position? d. How much additional work is required to stretch the spring 0.25 m if it has already

been stretched 0.1 m from its equilibrium position?

SOLUTION

a. The fact that a force of 10 N is required to keep the spring stretched at x = 0.1 m means (by Hooke’s law) that F 10.12 = k10.1 m2 = 10 N. Solving for the spring constant, we find that k = 100 N>m. Therefore, Hooke’s law for this spring is F 1×2 = 100x.

b. The work in joules required to compress the spring from x = 0 to x = -0.5 is

W = L b

a F 1×2 dx = L -0.50 100x dx = 50×2 ` -0.50 = 12.5.

➤ Hooke’s law was proposed by the English scientist Robert Hooke (1635–1703), who also coined the biological term cell. Hooke’s law works well for springs made of many common materials. However, some springs obey more complicated spring laws (see Exercise 51).

The kth layer occupying the interval 3yk – 1, yk4, for k = 1, c, n, is approximately yk* units above the bottom of the tank, where yk

To reach the level y = h, the kth layer is lifted an approximate distance 1h – yk*2 (Figure 6.74). So the work in lifting the kth layer to a height h is approximately

Summing the work required to lift all the layers to a height h, the total work is

W ≈ a n

n

k = 1 A1yk*2rg1h – yk*2∆y.

W = lim nS ∞ a

n

k = 1 A1yk*2rg1h – yk*2∆y = Lb0 rgA1y21h – y2 dy.

This derivation assumes that the bottom of the tank is at y = 0, in which case the distance that the slice at level y must be lifted is D1y2 = h – y. If you choose a different location for the origin, the function D will be different. Here is a general procedure for any choice of origin.

➤ The choice of a coordinate system is somewhat arbitrary and may depend on the geometry of the problem. You can let the y-axis point upward or downward, and there are usually several logical choices for the location of y = 0. You should experiment with different coordinate systems.

W = L b

a F 1×2 dx = L0.350.1 100x dx = 50×2 ` 0.350.1 = 5.625.

Comparing parts (c) and (d), we see that more work is required to stretch the spring 0.25 m starting at x = 0.1 than starting at x = 0. Related Exercises 17–26

Lifting Problems Another common work problem arises when the motion is vertical and the force is the gravitational force. The gravitational force exerted on an object with mass m is F = mg, where g ≈ 9.8 m>s2 is the acceleration due to gravity near the surface of Earth. The work in joules required to lift an object of mass m a vertical distance of y meters is

work = force # distance = mgy. This type of problem becomes interesting when the object being lifted is a body of

water, a rope, or a chain. In these situations, different parts of the object are lifted different distances—so integration is necessary. Here is a typical situation and the strategy used.

Suppose a fluid such as water is pumped out of a tank to a height h above the bottom of the tank. How much work is required, assuming the tank is full of water? Three key observations lead to the solution.

Water from different levels of the tank is lifted different vertical distances, requiring different amounts of work.

Two equal volumes of water from the same horizontal plane are lifted the same distance and require the same amount of work.

A volume V of water has mass rV, where r = 1 g>cm3 = 1000 kg>m3 is the density of water.

To solve this problem, we let the y-axis point upward with y = 0 at the bottom of the tank. The body of water that must be lifted extends from y = 0 to y = b (which may be the top of the tank). The level to which the water must be raised is y = h, where h Ú b (Figure 6.74). We now slice the water into n horizontal layers, each having thickness ∆y.

➤ Notice again that the units in the integral are consistent. If F has units of N and x has units of m, then W has units of F dx, or N@m, which are the units of work 11 N@m = 1 J2.

QUICK CHECK 4 In Example 2, explain why more work is needed in part (d) than in part (c), even though the displacement is the same.

PROCEDURE Solving Lifting Problems 1. Draw a y-axis in the vertical direction (parallel to gravity) and choose a con-

venient origin. Assume the interval 3a, b4 corresponds to the vertical extent of the fluid.

2. For a … y … b, find the cross-sectional area A1y2 of the horizontal slices and the distance D1y2 the slices must be lifted.

3. The work required to lift the water is

W = L b

The kth layer occupying the interval 3yk – 1, yk4, for k = 1, c, n, is approximately yk* units above the bottom of the tank, where yk

* is any point in 3yk – 1, yk4. The cross-sectional area of the kth layer at yk

*, denoted A1yk*2, is determined by the shape of the tank; the solution depends on being able to find A for all values of y. Because the volume of the kth layer is approximately A1yk*2∆y, the force on the kth layer (its weight) is

mass t

Fk = mg ≈ A1yk*2∆y # r # g. t 6 volume density

To reach the level y = h, the kth layer is lifted an approximate distance 1h – yk*2 (Figure 6.74). So the work in lifting the kth layer to a height h is approximately

We now use this procedure to solve two pumping problems.

EXAMPLE 3 Pumping water How much work is needed to pump all the water out of a cylindrical tank with a height of 10 m and a radius of 5 m? The water is pumped to an outflow pipe 15 m above the bottom of the tank.

SOLUTION In this problem, we choose a different origin by letting y = 0 and y = -5 correspond to the center and the bottom of the tank, respectively. For -5 … y … 0, a hori- zontal layer of gasoline located at a depth y is a rectangle with a length of 10 and width of 2225 – y2 (Figure 6.76). Therefore, the cross-sectional area of the layer at depth y is

A1y2 = 20225 – y2. ➤ Again, there are several choices for the

location of the origin. The location in this example makes A1y2 easy to compute.

SOLUTION Figure 6.75 shows the cylindrical tank filled to capacity and the outflow 15 m above the bottom of the tank. We let y = 0 represent the bottom of the tank and y = 10 represent the top of the tank. In this case, all horizontal slices are circular disks of radius r = 5 m. Therefore, for 0 … y … 10, the cross-sectional area is

A1y2 = pr2 = p52 = 25p. Note that the water is pumped to a level h = 15 m above the bottom of the tank, so the lifting distance is D1y2 = 15 – y. The resulting work integral is

EXAMPLE 4 Pumping gasoline A cylindrical tank with a length of 10 m and a radius of 5 m is on its side and half-full of gasoline (Figure 6.76). How much work is required to empty the tank through an outlet pipe at the top of the tank? 1The density of gasoline is r ≈ 737 kg>m3.2

➤ Recall that g ≈ 9.8 m>s2. You should verify that the units are consistent in this calculation: The units of r, g, A1y2, D1y2, and dy are kg>m3, m>s2, m2, m, and m, respectively. The resulting units of W are kg m2>s2, or J. A more convenient unit for large amounts of work and energy is the kilowatt-hour, which is 3.6 million joules.
