Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yeah, there are 2 schools of thought, sorta. One is rings vs cylinders. The other is discs/shells/washers.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yep; shells is your best bet take an average cylinder of height f(x) and cut it straight up and flatten it out so that it is 2pi x wide

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0total area of the flattened cylinder is 2pi x [f(x)] 2pi [S] x[f(x)] dx in the interval gives you the volume :)
