Find the volume of the solid obtained by rotating the region bounded by the given curves about the specified axis.
y=1/x^4, y=0, x=2, x=9;

• calculus -

method: find the volume of the whole solid, then subtract the volume of the cylinder.

Volume of whole solid
= pi(integral)(1/x^4 + 5)^2 dx from 2 to 9
= pi[-1/(7x^4) - 10/(3x^3 + 25x] from 2 to 9
which came out to 551.077

the volume of the cylinder is
pi(5^2)(7) = 549.779

so the volume of the shape you described is 1.298

not too sure about my arithmetic.
