Volume of a solid formed when the region bounded by the graphs $\displaystyle y=x^3, y=0, x=1$ is revolved about line x=2.

I don't know where to start. Shell Method?

Got it. So for a similar one: $\displaystyle y=x^2, y=4$ revolved about the x-axis would be:

$\displaystyle V=2\pi\int_0^4y[\sqrt{y}-0]dy$ ?
