    |dw:1443683966585:dw| so lets take the thickness of the shell to be dx, the radius, to be x and the height to be f(x), so height is 1 + x^1/2

    :D I'm glad. Now that we have "opened" the shell up it is easier to write up the equation for the volume, so try coming up with the integral

    So I think the radious will =1-x And the height=y-1 Am I right?
