Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The shell method uses the 2(pi) at the beginning. Can u explain how u got that answere?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes. You have to understand what integral means. This solid consists of many little cylinders like on the picdw:1360448107971:dw The volume of the cylinder is \(\pi R^2h\), on the pic \(R\) is \(y(x)\) and \(h\) is \(dx\). We want the whole solid, so we sum the volumes of this small cylinders and get the volume of the solid as an integral.
