(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

y= -(x/6) + b, find the volume as this solid is rotated 360 degrees around the Y axis

2. Relevant equations

If I were given the interval at which I needed to find the volume and/or the value of B I could easily do this using the formula:

[pi] Integrate: (R(y))^{2}dx

3. The attempt at a solution

What I am trying to ascertain is whether or not this problem is even doable. I dont know if my professor intentionally left out the interval and b value and wants us to do it algebraically but I can't move ahead as most of the questions are based off this one. Please help!
