1. ## Basic Integration

I have a problem where i have to find the volume of an object rotating around an axis. The problem is my end value keeps comming out negative. I think the problem is in my integration.

How would i integrate (-x^2)(√(x+5))? Thanks

Go to this website Wolfram|Alpha
In the input window, type in this exact expression: integrate -x^2(sqrt[x+5])dx (you can copy & paste)
Click the equals bar at the right-hand end of the input window.
