Find the volume generated when the area in Example 1 will revolve about the y-axis.
Find the volume of the solid generated when the area bounded by the curve y2 = x, the x-axis and the line x = 2 is revolved about the x-axis.
The solid generated by rotating a plane area about an axis in its plane is called a solid of revolution. The volume of a solid of revolution may be found by the following procedures:
