Use the disc method. We create a disc by making a cross section perpendicular to the x-axis. The volume is then given by where is the area of our disc and are our bounds.

is that the same as

V=(pie)interval from a to b((f(x)^2)-(g(x)^2) dx - August 2nd 2009, 02:44 PMo_O
Yes. What is our and in this case?

f(x)=square root of x

g(x)=1 - August 2nd 2009, 02:52 PMchevy900ss
So is the answer 9pie/2

(Yes)
