The Surface Area of Paraboloid calculator computes Paraboloid  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:

• (a) - the length along the axis.
• (b) - the length from the axis to the edge of the parabola.

Surface Area of Paraboloid (A): The surface area (A) is returned in square meters.  However, this can be automatically converted to compatible units via the pull-down menu.

#### The Math / Science

A = πb² + (πb) / (6a^2) * ( (b^2+4a^2)^(3/2) - a^3)
