Is this setup correct?
Q: "Use the method of cylindrical shells to find the volume V of the solid obtained by rotating the region bounded by the given curves about the xaxis."
x = 1 + y\(^2\), x = 0, y = 1, y = 3
\[\huge\int\limits_0^{\sqrt{2}} (2 \pi)(y)((3)  (1+y^2)) dy\]
y=3 is the right function
x=1+y\(^2\) is the left function
right  left
Graph below:

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I think you switched some things around. First of all, the lines you drew for y=1,3 are vertical lines when they should be horizontal. In short, check the area you want integrate again.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1That looks better. So your new integrand and bounds would be...?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\huge\int\limits_1^3 (2 \pi)(y)((3)  (1+y^2)) dy = \frac{26}{3}\] The shells are growing out from the xaxis but I'm still missing something, a radius change perhaps? But which one? +1 or 1?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Seems like 1y is logical for a shift upward, the others evaluate negative

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The only change I would make is in the integrand again. The right side is now \((1+y)^2\) and the left is 0. Hence, you should have \[\huge\int\limits_1^3 (2 \pi)(y)( (1+y^2)0) dy \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\large \int\limits_1^3 (2 \pi)(y)( (1+y^2)0) dy =^? \int\limits_1^3 (2 \pi)(1y)((3)  (1+y^2)) dy = \frac{44}{3}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Wait, I misread the question. There shouldn't be a close parentheses there XD Have you already tried it without the close parentheses that I added?
