The area enclosed between the x-axis, the curve y=x(2-x) and the ordinates x=1 and x=2 is rotated through 2π radians about x-axis. (
a)Calculate the volume of the solid revolution formed.
(b)Calculate the rotating area.

    I will find the area first
    ( I read that as the area to be rotated, not the surface area of the rotated solid)

    b) Area = ∫(2x - x^2) dx from 1 to 2
    = [x^2 - (1/3)x^3] from 1 to 2
    = (4 - (1/3)(8) ) - (1 - 1/3)
    = 2/3

    a) we need y^2
    y^2 = x^2(4 - 4x + x^2) = 4x^2 - 4x^3 + x^4
    volume = π∫y^2 dx from 1 to 2
    = π∫(4x^2 - 4x^3 + x^4) dx from 1 to 2
    = π[(4/3)x^3 - x^4 + (1/5)x^5] from 1 to 2
    = π( (4/3)(8) - 16 + (1/5)(32) ) - (4/3 - 1 + 1/5) )
    = π( 16/15 - 8/15)
    = 8π/15

    check my arithmetic
