Let R be the region in Quadrant 1 bounded by the graphs of y=lnx and y=1.Find the exact volume of the solid generated by rotating R about the y-axis. Thanks for help.

The requested volume is... (1) Kind regards
thank you,could you tell me where did you get that e^2x?

This conducts to use the formula... (1) ... where , formula that leads to a more confortable integration... Kind regards
thanks.
btw,could you tell me what does the dx stand for?
