2-8.

The shaded region below represents a flag (the upper boundary is a semi-circle). Find the volume of the solid formed when the flag is rotated about the pole. In a complete sentence, describe the rotated shape. To help you visualize this, use the 2-8 eTool (Desmos). Homework Help ✎

It's a sphere on the outside with two cones removed from the inside.

V = sphere − 2(cone)

The radius of the sphere is 3. The radius and height of each cone is also 3.

Use the eTool below to visualize the flag.
