i'm told to use the method of cylindrical shells to find the volume gnerated by rotating the region bounded these curves about the y axis:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

y=e^(-x^2)

y=0

x=0

x=1

Couple questions. What does the graph of y=e^(-x^2) look like? Also, i know the integral is =integral(a,b) 2(pi)x*e^(-x^2) how do i evaulate the e^(-x^2) part?
