  1. using discs, just add up the volumes of tiny slices with radius y and thickness dx:

    v = ∫[0,0.7] πy^2 dx
    = ∫[0,0.7] π(e^(5x)+2)^2 dx

    using shells, you add up the volume of thin cylinders of radius y and height 0.7-x, and thickness dy.
    Since the thickness is dy, you have to integrate over y, so you need to express x in terms of y:
    x = ln(y-2)/5

    Also, for 0<y<2, you have just a solid cylinder of radius 2 and height 0.7

    v = π(2^2)(.7) + ∫[2,e^3.5+2] 2πy(0.7-ln(y-2)/5) dy
