~~For a full list of surfaces of revolution, see [[:Category:Surfaces of revolution]]. Particular ~~Some examples aregiven below:

~~* ~~{| class="sortable" border="1"! Curve being revolved !! Surface of revolution|-| semicircle with endpoints for a circle whose endpoints lie on the <math>x</math>-axis || [[~~Sphere~~2-sphere in Euclidean space]] ~~which is obtained from an upper semicircle~~~~* [[Cone]] which is obtained from a ~~|-| ray terminating at the <math>x</math>axis || infinite cone|-~~axis~~~~* [[Double cone]] which is obtained from a ~~| pair of rays terminating at the same point of the <math>x</math>-axis, and which have slopes of equal magnitude but opposite sign|| infinite double cone|-~~* [[Cylinder]] which is obtained from a ~~| line parallel to the <math>x</math>-axis|| infinite cylinder|-| circle not intersecting the <math>x</math>-axis || [[2-torus in Euclidean space]]|}
