Homework Help: Integrating volumes

  1. Nov 1, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Revolve the region bounded by x=0, x=1, y=0 and y=x^5 about the y axis use shells to find the volume

    I know how to set up the integral I just don't know where i'm integrating from. Is it from 0 to 1?

    Hi physicsnewb7! :smile:

    You can use "horizontal" strips, to give you disc shells, or "vertical" strips, to give you cylindrical shells …

    in either case, use the endpoints of the strip. :wink:
