Volumes of our Models

Just as we created models for the Metrodome walls, we can postulate some models for the shape of the Metrodome roof. For concreteness, for the remainder of the lab we will only use the model that assumes that the walls are elliptical in shape.

We will model the height of the Metrodome roof by the function

roof := 1/3 - 1/6 * ((5*x/6)^2+y^2)^2;
