Hexagon rotation

A regular hexagon of side 6 cm is rotated through 60° along a line passing through its longest diagonal. What is the volume of the figure thus generated?

Correct result:

V =  226.1947 cm3


a=6 cm k=60/180=130.3333 h=a2(a/2)2=62(6/2)2=3 3 cm5.1962 cm S1=π h2=3.1416 5.1962284.823 cm2 V1=S1 a=84.823 6508.938 cm3 V2=1/3 S1 (a/2)=1/3 84.823 (6/2)84.823 cm3 V=k (V2+V1+V2)=0.3333 (84.823+508.938+84.823)=226.1947 cm3
