I'm looking at a bonus for an assignment:
Compute the volume of the solid produced when the region between the x-axis and , for , is revolved about the x-axis.
I've never done these types of problems, but I set it up like this:
Kind of as I expected in my head...the horizontal asymptote on the x-axis would mean that this function is divergent with that infinite limit. Based on that, I wouldn't be able to calculate any volume.
I was wondering if my thinking was right on this or if there is a different procedure I need to take? I simply haven't done any volume problems before. Am I out in left field or is my thinking right?
Thank you in advance!
