a) Find the area of R in terms of k.

b) Find the volume of the solid generated when R is rotated about the x-axis in terms of k.

**drwls**, Monday, April 13, 2009 at 8:42ama) For the first quadrant region, x>0 to x = k, and the enclosed area is

Integral y dx =

Integral 2e^-x dx

x = 0 to k

= -2 e^-k + 2 e^0

= 2(1 - e^-k)

b) Make the integrand pi*y^2 dx and perform the resulting integration from 0 to k

c) This should be obvious after doing (b)
