(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Use the method of cylindrical shells to find the volume generated by rotating the region bounded by the given curves about the given axis:

y = x^{2}, y = 0, x = 1, x = 2, about x = 1

2. Relevant equations

V = 2[itex]\pi[/itex][itex]\int[/itex]xf(x)

3. The attempt at a solution

I am assuming based off the graph that my f(x) would be equal to 4-x^{2}, but I am having difficulty figuring out the respective x value. Any help?
