I have this problem that wants me to find the volume of a solid. The problem is as follows:
Find the volume of the solid obtained by rotating the region bounded by , , and , about the x-axis.
I'm having trouble getting started with this problem. I've never done a problem like this and I can't find anything helpful in my textbook (I'm probably not looking in the right direction). I was wondering if anyone could give me some tips on how to get started or how to approach the problem.
Thanks for you consideration,
I hate to be a bother, but I do want to make sure I'm doing these problems right, so I have a similar problem:
"Find the volume of the solid obtained by rotating the region bounded by y = 0, y = e^(5*x), x = 1, and x = ln(3)"
Applying the same idea before would the volume be:
Or since it's revolved about the y-axis instead of the x-axis would the upper and lower boundaries be different? Thanks again in advance.
About the y axis it is a bit more complicated if your sure it's the y-axis I'll post some details on how to do it.
