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

Use the shell method to set up and evaluate the integral that gives the volume of the solid generated by revolving the plane region about the y-axis.

y = √x

2. Relevant equations

V=2∏∫p(x)h(x) dx

a=0

b=8

3. The attempt at a solution

V=2∏∫(x)(√x)dx

a=0 b=8

=2∏∫(x)^{3/2}dx

=[(4∏/5)x^{5/2}]^{8}

V= when I do this my answer is wrong and too big
