Concept Questions :-

A disk of radius a can be assumed to be made of infinite concentric rings each of small thickness dr. Now consider a ring of inner radius r and outer radius r+dr. If we cut out this smalll ring, cut it along the radius and straighten it out, we obtain a rectangle of length 2πr and thickness dr.


Total area of disk A= 0r2πrdr [Since radius of innermost ring is zero and that of outer most is a]

==2πr220a =2πa22=πa2
