The Law Of Power

From the author's introduction:

3.4 Cylinders and shapes with a uniform cross-section

An important idea when calculating volumes of simple shapes is that of a cross-section. In the case of the rectangular box considered above, it is possible to slice through the box horizontally so that the sliced area is exactly the same as the area of the base or top; in other words, the areas of the horizontal cross-sections are equal.
