Using the Disk Method or washer method (im not sure which one)

Find The volume of y=x^3 , y=1 , x = 2

revolving around the X axis

V=PI*INT y^2 dx

=PI INT x^6 dx from x=1 to x=2

PI*y^2 is the area of the disk

dx is its thickness.

I will assume you want to rotate the region bounded by your three curves.

vol = π(integral) (x^6 - 1)dx

= π[(x^7)/7 - x]from 1 to 2

= pi[128/7-2 - (1/7 - 1)]

= π[127/7 - 1) cubic units

check my arithmetic, I have been making some silly typing errors lately.

Maybe you mean the area between the horizontal line y = 1 and the curve y = x^3 from their intersection at (1,1) to the vertical line x = 2 spun around the x axis?

That would be washers.

inner radius = 1

outer radius = x^3

area of washer = pi (x^3)^2 - pi

= pi (x^6-1)

integrate that times dx from x = 1 to x = 2

pi ( x^7/7 - x) at x = 2 = pi 128/7 -14/7) = pi (114/7)

pi (x^7/7 - x) at x = 1 = pi(1/7 - 1)= pi (-6/7)

so

pi (120/7)

Well, we check this time :)

noticed that too, lol

but, after all, I am on third cup of coffee.
