Calculate the area when is rotated around the y-axis.
This is the formula. But when I solve for y, I get a ±. Should I just take the +version?

Replacing y by -y will just change dx/dy to -dx/dy and that is squared in your formula. So it really doesn't matter whether you use "y" or "-y".
I have narrowed this down to finding the primitive of but I'm stuck there.
