Please help! How do I do this problem?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Using the method of cylindrical shells, find the volume generated by rotating the region the region bounded by the given curves about the specified axis.

y=(x-1)^(1/2), y=0, x=5; about y = 3

Please tell me how to set up the integral! Any help is MUCH appreciated.

So far I have Integral from 0 to 2 of (3-(y^2+1))*y dy I know that isn't right, because I am not getting the right answer! The book says that it is 24pi.

Thank you.
