Find the volume obtained by rotating the solid about the specified line.

y=2-(1/2)x, y=0, x=1, x=2, about the x-axis.

2. Relevant equations

I used the disk method

3. The attempt at a solution

I drew a sketch and used disk method. For the radius I used 2-(1/2)x with a height of 1, and integrated. For an answer, I came up with 5pi/4. Does this seem correct? Thanks!
