* {| 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 || [[Sphere2-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]]|}
