Nice!(You could always just make the paint suitably thinner as x increases.)P

No one could hear this horn.It's resonant frequency is 0 Hz ( 1/∞ ) and the high surface area to volume ratio means that friction will absorb all the sound.This explains the rise of atheism!

Is that Gabriel the Archangel? He linked the discrete to the continuous.Problem just looks like a variant of a harmonic series And a nice solid of revolution. However, V = (1/ x^2) which is convergent, both as an integral and a series. About x-axis.

Find f(x) for this solid of revolution (your head it simply spins).

It may be a painter's paradox but if you abstract the problem away it becomes first-year real analysis:1/x is not integrable (harmonic series)(1/x)^2 is integrable
