the region in the x-y plane bounded by the y=x^2, the line x=0 and the line x=5 and the x-axis. find the volume generated
What did you not understand about my response yesterday?
From your description, the enclosed region is an area, not a volume. It is simply the integral of x^2 from 0 to 5.
Did you leave out a part about the area being rotated about the x axis? That would give you a paraboloidal volume
