**Mooch**, Tuesday, March 13, 2012 at 4:55pmThis is precisely why I posted, I thought that the wording of this practice problem might make sense to someone else, because it completely confused me.

After a lot of thinking, I figured that the solid of revolution was a hemisphere. It was created by rotating the quarter circle in the first quadrant around the y-axis perhaps. This resulted in a volume of (32/3)pi.
