Volume of Torus: using Shell's mehod

[tex] 4\pi \int^{1}_{-1}((R-x) \sqrt{r^2 - x^2})dx [/tex]

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I don't know how to integrate this at all. I cannot use any conventional methods...or I can't think of a way... i.e. use isolate a function asuand try to integrate wrtdu

Is the only way to distribute the equation first?
