The base of a solid is the region bounded by the parabola and the line y = 2. Each plane section of the solid perpendicular to the y-axis is an equilateral triangle. Find the volume of the solid.
I did not understand the line "Each plane ............ equilateral triangle"
What shape does the solid have?
I have drawn the graph, but volume of which solid is it asking?
different base, but check out the link for a good visualization ...
