# Thread: volumes of solids by revolution

1. ## volumes of solids by revolution

find the volume of the solid of revolution generated by revolving about the y-axis the region bounded by the curve $\displaystyle y = \sqrt{x}$, the x-axis and the line x = 4;

Just checking out if its:
$\displaystyle \pi \int_{0}^{2} (4)^2 - (4 - y^2)^2 dy$ ?

why do you have $\displaystyle \left( 4 - y^2 \right)^2$? it is the out radius, which is 4. minus the inner radius which is $\displaystyle y^2$

$\displaystyle \pi \int_{0}^{2} \left[4^2 - \left( y^2 \right)^2 \right]~dy$

(remember, the $\displaystyle \pi$ should be applied to both radii)

...you know, I never noticed you were from the Philippines until now...
