I remember calculating volume by revolving shapes around axis using integration in school. I have an arbitrary shape shape that has no easily attainable equation, if I know the area of that shape, can I calculate the volume?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

This is an example. I know this area, and want the volume if revolved around the y-axis:
