(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

The region in the second quadrant bounded above by the curve y=-x^3, below by the x-axis, and on the left by the line x=-1, about the line x=-2

2. Relevant equations

It's basically the big radius squared minus the small radius squared, integrated in terms of y, and multiply that by pi, I think. But I have a hard time coming up the with expression for that when it's revolved around something other than the x or y axis... Please help?

3. The attempt at a solution

Well, the curve in terms of y is x=(-y)^(1/3). I have a hard time adjusting that so it is the right equation for the big radius, and adjusting the x=-1 so it is the small radius....
