# Shell method

Not what you're looking for?

Use the shell method to set up and evaluate the integral that gives the volume of the solid generated by revolving the plane region about the y axis.

1. y=x. Line goes from (0,0) to to (2,2). Picture shows a thin yellow rectangle going from about x=1.5 vertical to the y=x line.

2) y=sq. root of x. Line goes from (0,0) to to (4,2). Picture shows a thin yellow rectangle going from about x=2.5 vertical to the y=sq. root of x line.

5) y=x^2, y=0,x=2

7) y=x^2, y=4-x^2

9) y=4-x^2, x=0, y=4
