1-60.

When the semi-circular flag below is rotated, it has a volume of $\frac{243}{2}\pi$ un3

1. Describe the resulting three-dimensional figure.

Use the eTool below to visualize the rotating flag.

2. What is the value of $d$?

$\frac{243}{2}\pi =\frac{4}{3}\pi r^{3}$

$r=\frac{1}{2}d$

Prism: $V=Bh$;   Cylinder: $V=\pi r^2h$;   Sphere: $V=\frac{4}{3}πr^3$;  Pyramid: $V=\frac{1}{3}Bh$;  Cone: $V=\frac{1}{3}πr^2h$

3. If the diagram is rotated $90^\circ$ and the flag is then rotated about a horizontal pole, will the volume change?
