Let f(x) = the cube root of x. Find the area of the surface generated by revolving the curve y = f(x) around the x-axis, for x ranging from 0 to 1. Keep in mind that the derivative of the cube root of x tends to infinity as x tends to 0, so the area will be equal to an improper integral. Be sure that you express your answer so that it is an actual real number, not an expression which evaluates to infinity minus infinity. For example, if the indefinite integral were ln(x) + ln(2/x), you would not want to plug in x = 0, and write the answer as ln(0) + ln(2/0). Instead, you would want to si
