C4 Mathematics Edexcel January 2011 Question 6

  1. The curve C has parametric equations x = ln t, y = t2 - 2, t > 0


(a) an equation of the normal to C at the point where t = 3 ,

(b) a cartesian equation of C.

The finite area R, shown in Figure 1, is bounded by C, the x-axis, the line x = ln 2 and the

line x = ln 4 . The area R is rotated through 360° about the x-axis.

(c) Use calculus to find the exact volume of the solid generated.
