# Math Help - Finding volume by rotating the region bounded by the given curves

1. ## Finding volume by rotating the region bounded by the given curves

Find the volume of the solid obtained by rotating the region (in both the first and second quadrants) bounded by the given curves about the specified axis.
$V = \pi * \int_{-1}^{1}(6 - x^2)^2dx - \pi*\int_{-1}^{1}(6 - 1)^2dx$
This is basically integrating the area of a cross-section, which has $A = \pi r^2$. Then we see that the "radii" are given by (6 - f(x)) and (6 - g(x))
