# Pappus's centroid theorem

In mathematics, physics, and logic, Pappus' centroid theorem (also known as the Guldinus theorem, Pappus–Guldinus theorem or Pappus' theorem) is either of two related theorems dealing with the surface areas and volumes of surfaces and solids of revolution.

The theorem is attributed to Pappus of Alexandria and Paul Guldin.

## The first theorem

The first theorem states that the surface area A of a surface of revolution generated by rotating a plane curve C about an axis external to C and on the same plane is equal to the product of the arc length s of C and the distance d traveled by its geometric centroid.

$A = sd.\,$

For example, the surface area of the torus with minor radius r and major radius R is

$A = (2\pi r)(2\pi R) = 4\pi^2 R r.\,$

## The second theorem

The second theorem states that the volume V of a solid of revolution generated by rotating a plane figure F about an external axis is equal to the product of the area A of F and the distance d traveled by its geometric centroid.

$V = Ad.\,$

For example, the volume of the torus with minor radius r and major radius R is

$V = (\pi r^2)(2\pi R) = 2\pi^2 R r^2.\,$

Lettris

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.

boggle

Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
