Example 5.3.1

By the method of slicing, obtain the volume of a wedge cut from a cylinder of radius r.


In particular, let the axis of symmetry for the cylinder lie along the z-axis, the bottom face of the wedge in the plane z=0, and the slanted face of the wedge in the plane that passes through the origin and that makes an angle α with the horizontal.
