The curves intersect at (pi/4,1/√2)

On that interval, cos(x) > sin(x), so

A = ∫[0,pi/4](cosx-sinx)dx

= sinx+cosx[0,pi/4]

= (1/√2+1/√2)-(0+1) = √2-1

V = ∫[0,pi/4]pi*(R^2-r^2)dx

where R=cosx and r=sinx

V = pi*∫[0,pi/4](cos^2-sin^2)dx

= pi*∫[0,pi/4]cos(2x) dx

= pi/2 sin(2x)[0,pi/4]

= pi/2 * (1-0)

= pi/2
