Homework Help: Volumes, applications of integrations

  1. May 15, 2007 #1
    find the volume of the solid by rotating the region bounded by the given curves about the specified line,

    y=x^4, y=1; about y=2

    how do i set up the problem so i can figure out the area, i don't need the answer, and i already graphed it, and i already rotated the graph,

    Why do you want to find the area since you were asked for volume? Do you want to use a theorem of Pappus? Or would you rather use shells or disks? I don't exactly get the question.
