Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0laplace, you might get a negative volume, because the area you are rotation is on the left side of the yaxis. Try to mirror it, i.e. you \(y≤(x−2)^2\) and the interval \([0,2]\) Also, could you please change that picture, it is not appropriate for some people here!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so what conditions do we have, when do we have to worry about this happening, negative volume.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0for example , we dont have to worry about this in the disc method, because of pi*r^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0There are only problems, when you apply a formula to a situation it is not made for. The formula for the shell method is made for interval on the positive part of the xaxis. So if you have the situation where the area is on the negative part, you have to mirror it. The solid of revolution is the same, as it is symmetric, but you can only then apply the formula.
