Theres a few key concepts about the disc and washer method that I can't quite grasp and I was hoping if I could get a bit of clarification.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1) How do you find your outer and inner radius? I can provide an example if needed.

2) If a problem has its function, for example f(x)= sec x, g(x)=tan x, x=0, and x=1.. what do the values x=0 and x=1 mean in the question. Do they represent some sort of asymptote?

Thanks,

David
