Picture a bunch of squares stacked up perp.to the y-axis in your given region.
This is NOT a volume of revolution. Since we are perp to the y-axis we will integrate wrt y.
The area of a square is
So, we have
Find the volume of the solid whose base is the region between the curve and y-axis from to , and whose cross sections taken perpendicular to the y-axis are squares.
I don't understand "whose cross sections taken perpendicular to y-axis are squares".
How can I solve this problem? If possible, would you please explain step by step?
Thank you very much.
