    Volumes of solids of revolutions

    Find the volume of the solid obtained by rotating the region bounded by the graphs of y=x^(2) and x=y^(2) around the line x=-1.
    Thanks for the help.

    using cylindrical shells w/r to x ...

    V = 2\pi \int_0^1 (x+1)(\sqrt{x} - x^2) \, dx<br />

    using washers w/r to y ...

    V = \pi \int_0^1 (\sqrt{y} + 1)^2 - (y^2 + 1)^2 \, dy
