many 3d forms of can be expressed as a 2d shapes elevated a given distance. their volumes are expressed as the base area times the hight.

for instance, cubes, cilinders et al. their volumes, expressed as functions of their base shapes are all V(A)=Ah

othere 3d forms can be experessed as a 2d shape rotated about an axis of symitry. for example sphears, cones, cilinders et al.

is there a universal function for the volume of such forms in terms of the rotated shape?
