    Volume of a Solid Revolved About X-Axis

    I'm trying to practice for my final. The sample problem is: "Find the volume of the solid generated when the region bounded by y = x4and y = x1/3, 0<=x<=1, is revolved about the x-axis." To start, I set the two y equations equal to each to find the points of intersection. x4 = x1/3, : raise...

    Representing functions as power series

    Homework Statement I have this function f(x) = \frac{6}{1+49x^2}, and i suppose to represent this function as a power series \displaystyle f(x) = \sum_{n=0}^\infty c_n x^n. Then i need to find the first few coefficients in the power series. Homework Equations The Attempt at a Solution...
