From john: find volume of solid generated by revolving the region in the first quadrant bounded by the curve y squared=x cubed, the line x=4 and the x-axis about the line y=8. The answer in the back of the book is 704 pi divided by5 Answered by Penny Nom.
From christina: find the volume of the solid formed when region bounded by y=x/3, y=2
and the y-axis. it is revolved about the x-axis.
the assignment was to use both the washer method and the shell method
but when i solved for the volume, i got different answers.
i think my shell method is wrong because i know i'm having difficulties
with using "dy" instead of "dx"
here's my work so far: Answered by Penny Nom.
From Lorraine Wall: I'm on the section fpr The Computation of Volumes of Solids of Revolution and the following question is giving me problems:
-Consider the region in the first quadrant bounded by the x-and y-axes, the vertical line x=3, and the curve y=1/(xsquared + 3) I can determine the volume of the solid by rotating the region about the y-axis using the shell method but I can't seem to be able to get started with the volume when rotated about the x-axis.
