  1. x = 3 and y^2 = 12x intersect at (3,6) and (3,-6)
    so we can take horizontal slices, and because of the symmetry just go from y = 0 to y = 6 and double the result.
    we also have a radius of 3 - y^2/12
    V = 2π ∫r^2 dy from 0 to 6
    = 2π ∫(3 - y^2/12)^2 dy from 0 to 6
    = 2π ∫(9 - (1/2)y^2 + y^4/144) dy
    = 2π [ 9y - (1/6)y^3 + (1/720)y^5] from 0 to 6
    = 2π ( 54 - 216/6 + 7776/720 - 0 )
    = 2π(144/5)
    = 288π/5 or appr 180.96
