\[\pi \int\limits_{1}^{\infty} [1/x]^2 dx\]

Since the curve is being rotated about the x axis, we can see that the radius of the inverted funnel so formed will be in the direction of the y axis. Now, since the funnel is never ending, it will not terminate at any one point and so we can take the integral of the area of the base of the funnel from 0 to infinity. This will give us the required volume. \[\int\limits_{1}^{\infty} \pi*y ^{2} dx\]\[= \pi \int\limits_{0}^{\infty} (1/x ^{2}) dx\]\[= \pi\] , when we solve the integral.

1 to infinity in the 2nd integral*

it is pi :) but that looks copied and pasted :) can you expand it out?

what looks copied and pasted? we solve questions similar to this in my calculus class.. integral (1/x^2) = [-1/x] now in the limits 1 to infinity we get [0 - (-1)] * pi = pi.

\[F(x) = \pi \int\limits_{0}^{\infty} x^{-2} dx \rightarrow F(x)=\pi. \frac{-1}{x}\]

\[F(\infty) = \pi.0 = 0\]\[F(1) = \pi.-1 = -\pi\]

\[F(\infty) - F(1) = 0 -(-\pi) = \pi\]
