Some of the volume problems below, such as The Super-Ultra-Mega-Big Cup, are more easily solved by using calculus. Others, like That's A Lot of Rock, can be solved by using area and volume formulas. For background information elsewhere on our site, explore the High School Trigonometry and Calculus areas of the Ask Dr. Math archives.
