    Whether the integral represents volume by shells or disks, or area, or anything else, it doesn't matter. You will have some integral of the form ##\int_a^b f(x)\, dx##. Just use the formula for Simpson's rule using ##a## and ##b##, the number of intervals ##n## and your formula ##f(x)##, whatever it is. You do know the Simpson rule formula, right?
