Included is my attempt at the following question. I get an answer of 10pi, whereas the right answer is (10pi)/3 from my text book. Here is the question:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Rotate the triangle described by (-1,0),(0,1),(1,0) around the axis x=2 and calculate the volume of the solid.

I basically changed the problem to the following and continued as it is the same

Rotate the triangle described by (1,0),(2,1),(3,0) around the y-axis and calculate the volume of the solid

Thanks for the help
