You must use integration?. Then let's use shells to find the volume of the portion removed, then subtract from the volume of the sphere.

Now, the volume of the 'hole':

=

Integrate and subtract that result from the total volume of the sphere.

You can also use washers to solve this. - Dec 9th 2007, 11:09 AMJhevon
This can be found by revolving the region bound between the circle of radius 14 and the line x = 9 (we would have to use the shell method here). do you see why this is true? did you draw a sketch?

if you want to use the disk method, we can get the same result by revolving the region bound between the circle of radius 14 and the line y = 9.

can you continue?

EDIT: Ah, ok. galactus did it another way.
