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 $\mathrm{α}$ with the horizontal.
