# How do you find the volume of the solid generated by revolving the region bounded by the curves y = x^(1/2), y = 2, and x = 0 rotated about the x=-1?

##### 1 Answer

#### Explanation:

Refer to the figure below

The generator region is Region A limited by

Since the revolution is around an axis parallel to the y-axis, it's convenient to use the inverse function

We can use a trick to solve this problem: translating the y-axis to the position of the axis of the revolution. Consequently

We only have to remember to exclude Region B, since now the old

Applying the formula for volume of a solid of revolution (with a hole), with axis of revolution in y-axis:

#V=pi int_a^b [R(y)^2-r(y)^2]*dy# , where#R(y)# is the external radius and#r(y)# is the internal radius

#V=pi int_0^2 [(y^2+1)^2-1^2]*dy#

#V=pi int_0^2 (y^4+2y^2+cancel1-cancel1)*dy#

#V=pi int_0^2 (y^4+2y^2)*dy#

#V=pi (y^5/5+2/3y^2)|_0^2#

#V=pi(32/5+2/3*8)=pi(96+80)/15=(176pi)/15~=36.86# [cubic units]
