AP Calculus AB

Balloon Project

We will break for a couple weeks to work on our balloon project.  This is a fun application of volumes of rotation that we have been working on for the past few units.
In this project you will design a hot air balloon by finding an equation to model it and you will perform a rotation and find all of the values needed to create the balloon.  You will then create the balloon.  Once created, you will fly the balloon.  There will also be a test on the process and the calculus behind it.  I would expect to find the volume of your balloon.
