When you rotate about the x-axis (y = 0), you integrate with respect to x.

When you rotate along the line x = 4, you integrate with respect to y.

And can you tell why you picked ? - Apr 11th 2011, 12:21 PMProve It
Hint: Translate your function and all the bounds left 4 units. The region does not change, but the calculations are easier because you can rotate around the x axis.
