    Hint: \[\int\limits_{-1}^{1}\sqrt{1-x ^{2}}=\frac{ \pi }{ 2 }\]

    Do you know the formula for the volume of solid rotating \(y=f(x)\) about \(x\)-axis?

    \(V=\pi\int_{-1}^1(\sqrt{1-x^2}+2)^2dx-\pi\int_{-1}^1(-\sqrt{1-x^2}+2)^2dx\)

    If you don't get it now just sit and think about it very thoroughly.

    |dw:1357858979556:dw| the graph of x^2+(y-2)^2=1 is something like that how do we get to the penultimate drawing

    i kinda get it you reflect a portion of the circle in the x axis and find the region bounded by the two arcs|dw:1357859345394:dw|

    if you try to write y depending on x, you will get 2 functions: \(y=\sqrt{1-x^2}+2\) and \(y=-\sqrt{1-x^2}+2\). Now think what will be if you rotate them about x-axes. And then use your imagination to unterstand how to get the needed volume. Really the plot is:|dw:1357859397346:dw|

    But if you are lazy and dishonest student you can just use the formulas I've written above.

    yes it is basically a volume but it complicated by the fact that the function that we get after making y the subject of the formula is composed of two equations so we add the two. right?

    It is very hard to tell if you got something or not. I don't know your level of knowledge. Tell me honestly: can you find the area between \(y=x^2\) and \(y=1-x^2\)?

    subtract x^2 from 1-x^2 and integrate

    Yes. The similar situation is here. But now we have a volume to subtract. Hope, you got something, if not - very bad.

    so basically in this prob they ask us to find the volume rather than the area
