    volume problem

    find the region by rotating about the y-axis

    y=e^{-x^2}~~~x-axis~~~~~x=0~~~~and ~~x=1

    I was thinking

     v=2pix\int_{0}^{1}e^{-x^2}

    but is that enough to bound the entire region or do I need another function?

    You're on the right track, except that x belongs inside the integral.

    2{\pi}\int_{0}^{1}xe^{-x^{2}}dx
