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 x-axis." 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:

    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.

    Wait a minute I'm getting zero when I evaluate...

    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 x-axis but I'm still missing something, a radius change perhaps? But which one? +1 or -1?

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

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

    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

    How about \[\large\int\limits_1^3 (2 \pi)(y)( 1+y^2) dy?\]

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