    To find the volume of a region bounded above by y = f(x) and below by the x axis, rotated about the x axis, use $\displaystyle \begin{align*} V= \pi \int_a^b{ \left[ f(x) \right] ^2 \, \mathrm{d}x } \end{align*}$

    If you are not familiar with the general integral form for finding a volume of rotation using the method of disks, why were you assigned such a problem?
