    Is there another name for "the volume Swept through" in maths "Graphs" ?

    No matter how and where I search I cant find anything showing me how to get the "the volume swept through" of a graph and yet they ask it just like that in one of my assignments :(.

    Heres the question.

    Sketch the parabola y=2x^2 +5 and the line y=3x+4 on the same set of axes.
    The segment cut off from the parabola y=2x^2 +5 by the line y=3x +4 is rotated around the
    x-axis once.Determine the volume swept through.

    They're asking for the volume of the solid of revolution. Your textbook should have a number of examples of this type of problem.

    Also, I am moving this thread to the Calculus & Beyond section.
