Finding the volume of solid of revolution by integration

The region R is bounded by the graphs of x-2y = 3 and x=y^2. Set up (but not evaluate) the integral that gives the volume of the solid obtained by rotating R around the line x=-1.

Solution Summary

The solution explains how to step up the integral to solve the volume of the solid of revolution. Supplemented with graphs, the detailed solution provides a clear understanding of washer method.
