Homework Help: Find the volume of the solid obtained by rotating the region

  1. Jul 25, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Find the volume of the solid obtained by rotating the region bounded by the given curves about the specified line. Sketch the region, the solid, and a typical disk or washer. About x axis.
    1)
    y=1-x2
    y=0



    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution

    I sketched a curve and a region. A typical disk and a solid? And please check the solution?
