From Lorraine Wall: Consider the region in the first quadrant bounded by the x and y axes, the vertical line x=3 and the curve y = 1 / (x squared + 3). Determine the volume of the solid by rotating this region about the x-axis. Now that is the first part. I then have to find the coordinates of the centroid of the solid by rotating this region about the x-axis.
