    Red face Problem involving integrations and revolving volume

    Hey guys, I'm new to the forum, so... hey everyone haha

    Well, I have 1 + ln(x^3 - x^2 - x +3)

    now, using this and the X axis and a boundary from [0,1] I need to find

    The Area

    The volume when revolved about the X axis

    and the volume when revolved about the Y axis

    Could someone explain this to me? I can't seem to fin whatever I'm doing wrong.

    1 + ln(x^3 - x^2 - x +3) has no elementary integral. Are you certain this is the correct function?
