Heres the diagram (S is the yellow region)

Ok so the question is
Lets S be the solid obtained by rotating the region shown in the figure about the y-axis. Sketch a typical cylindrical shell and find its circumference and height. Use shells to find the volume of S. Do you think this method is preferable to slicing? Explain
This question was set as home work today but the problem is we only started this topic today and I don't understand the topic to the point where i can make sense of all this. However i think i know how to sketch it. Sort of like a camels hump with a cylinder going down the center. So if you help me thanks a lot in advance! =)
