Find the volume of the solid generated by revolving the region bounded by y = 4x-x^2 and y = 2x about the y-axis. About the line x = 2.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Since this is rotated about the y-axis, I know I have to manipulate the equation so I can get to x = something. The problem is I cannot change the equation y = 4x-x^2.

Questions:

How would you find the volume that is rotated about the y-axis while the equations are y = form instead of x =? If it is not possible, then what do I have to do in this case?

How would you find the volume if the axis of revolution is not y = 0?
