I need some help with a volume integration problem. y=x, y=(x)^1/2; about x=2 I'm supposed to graph it, then find the area, and then the volume. I can get the graph, but then I get confused. Any help?

I can get the graph, but then I get confused. Any help? area ... volume using cylindrical shells w/r to x ... volume using washers w/r to y ...
I'm familiar with both, but for this assignment we have to use washer method. Thanks for the help. I ended up with π/5, is that remotely correct?

Ohh, woops. I went back through and realized I completely messed up with foiling in the beginning. I redid it and got 8π/15, is that any closer? :/
that's fine.
