agentx5
Group Title
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

I 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.

Oh... I think believe I see what I did there, let's try that graph again: dw:1341361482202:dw

That looks better. So your new integrand and bounds would be...?

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

Seems like 1y is logical for a shift upward, the others evaluate negative

The 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 \[\huge\int\limits_1^3 (2 \pi)(y)( (1+y^2)0) dy \]

\[\large \int\limits_1^3 (2 \pi)(y)( (1+y^2)0) dy =^? \int\limits_1^3 (2 \pi)(1y)((3)  (1+y^2)) dy = \frac{44}{3}\]

No wait the first is 44/3 and the second is 44\(\pi\)/3

I think I forgot a close parentheses. \[\huge\int\limits_1^3 (2 \pi)(y)( (1+y)^2) dy\]

\[\huge\int\limits_1^3 (2π)(y)((1+y)^2)dy = \frac{248\pi }{3}\] Seems logical, let me give it a try...

Wait, 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?

(2π)(y)((1+y)^2)dy < literally what I started working with

What am I thinking, making vertical lines when it asked for horizontal lol
