Homework Help: Volume by Cylindrical Shells (need verification)

  1. Nov 9, 2008 #1
    A hole of radius [tex]\sqrt{3}[/tex] is bored through the center of a sphere of radius 2. Find the volume removed

    4[tex]\pi[/tex][tex]\int[/tex][tex]\intx\sqrt{a^{2}-x^{2}}dx[/tex] from [tex]\sqrt{3}[/tex] to 2[tex]\sqrt{3}[/tex]?

    And then subtract this from the volume of the sphere?
