The question I need to solve for an assignment is as follows:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Find the volume of the solid that is obtained by revolving the region R around the x-axis.

I figured that the volume would just be the integral of pi R^2 dx, so that would just be pi R^2 x, but that is not the answer. I suspect I am misinterpreting the question.
