I think you want unbounded area. Consinder a long interval . Then the volume is given by, To find the unbounded area (which is actually bounded). Find, Hint: Use .
sorry i seem to forgot something, the correct question is: The region bounded by and is revolved about the y-axis. Find the volume of the resulting solid.

Find the volume of the resulting solid. that's what i thought you meant to say, thought it probably would be cool to do it TPH's way if you didn't make a typo We proceed by the Method of Cylindrical Shells: Let So our integral becomes:
