OK

So, I have half an ellipse with the equation y = sqrt(1296-x^2). Here is the graph:

It is actually a curved 3d structure with the height 36m, so I found out the above equation by using the equation of the ellipse.

The question is:

To find the maximum volume of this structure (or curve)?

I can find the area by using integration but that wouldnt be the same as volume?

Any ideas?

PLS PLS HELP

PS. THE BUILDING LOOKS LIKE THIS:

Is it fair to say that it is an ellipse (half)?
