The Surface Area of Paraboloid calculator computes the surface area of revolution of a parabola around an axis of length (a) of a width of (b) including the circular base.
INSTRUCTIONS: Choose units and enter the following:
Surface Area of Paraboloid (A): The surface area is returned in square meters. However, this can be automatically converted to compatible units via the pull-down menu.
`A = πb² + (πb) / (6a^2) * ( (b^2+4a^2)^(3/2) - b^3)`
