A solid generated by rotating about the xaxis the region under the curve of f(x) from x=0 to x=b, is b^2 FOR ALL b>0. Find the function f.

Let's assume that f(0) = 0. Then
∫[0,b] f'(x) dx = b^2
f(b) = b^2
f(x) = x^2
f'(x) = 2x
∫[0,b] 2x dx = x^2 [0,b] = b^2
There are lots of other possible functions. Such as
∫[0,b] e^x dx = 1/k e^(kb)  1
1/k e^(kb)  1 = b^2
e^(kb) = k(1+b^2)
