#### Explanation:

The region to be rotated around x axis is shown, shaded blue, in the picture shown below

. In this region consider an element of width dx, at a distance x from y axis. Its length is y. If it is rotated about x axis, the volume of this elementary disc would be

The volume of the solid so generated by the rotation of the whole shaded region would be
