Let R be the first quadrant region enclosed by the graph of y= 2e^x and the line x=k.
a) Find the area of R in terms of k.
b) Find the volume of the solid generated when R is rotated about the xaxis in terms of k.
c) What is the volume in part (b) as k approaches infinity?

a) 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)
