    Do you know about multivariable calculus perhaps? Or do you want the easy-not-understanding-what-you're-doing way

    The answer is 8pi

    No, I am supposed to use the Disk Washer method. I can do it with antiderive(2-y) to get the right answer but I'm pretty sure that's not following th formula I'm given which is outer radius minus inner radius.

    Disk Washer?

    There's a hole in the solid.. so it's called Washer Method.

    So how does this method work?

    I do antiderivative from a-b in terms of x or y (y in this case because I rotate about y axis) pi (outer radius)^2 - (inner radius)^2

    \[\int\limits_{a}^{b} \pi (outer radius)^2 -(innerradius)^2 dx\]

    I don't how that works, I'm afraid.

    Oh you're doing the washer/disk method, my mistake.. Lemme slice that differently.

    |dw:1359838731527:dw|Ok this type of slice will give us a Disk.

    |dw:1359838764034:dw|So we want to get the Volume of this disk.

    The outer radius appears to be the line x=2. And the inner radius our function which is in terms of x, we'll need it in terms of y to integrate since we sliced in the y direction (dy thickness)

    Then to find the total volume in this enclosed area, we Integrate (add up all the slices) from one intersecting point to another. Where do they intersect? Ummm looks like.. y=0 and y=4?

    Simplifying things down gives us, \[\large \pi \int\limits_0^4 4-y \;dy\]

    Imma check my work real quick to make sure I didn't make a mistake somewhere. A little tired, it's possible. lol

    Yah I think that's right. Confused about any of that? I went through it a little sloppy D:

    It's right. I realize what I did wrong! I had the wrong intersections/points. I did instead from -2 to 2.. not realizing that it was based on terms of y . thank you so much!
