1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
Find the volume of this equation, revolved around x axis


2. Relevant equations
y=x^2
y^2=x

3. The attempt at a solution
1) (pi)(r^2)
2) r = x^2
3) (pi)((x^2)^2)
4) (pi)(x^4)

now to integrate

5) (pi)(1/5(x^5))

since x = 1, and 1^5=1, 1/5=1/5

pi/5?

there are two equations here (y=x^2 & y^2=x), are these two somehow combined for the result

the answer is supposed to be 3pi/10

thanks.
