Illustrating the Washer Method

Java applet allows the user to visualize the washer method for finding the volume of a solid formed by revolving a specific region about the \(x\)-axis. The region is formed by two fixed curves of functions in terms of the \(x\) variable. The applet allows the user to dynamically interact with the total volume, a specific washer, or a discrete number of washers. The user interacts with the 3D rendering with fluid mouse motions.
