Find the area of the surface generated when y=4x and x=1 is revolved about the yaxis.

No calculus need for this one. It's just a cylinder with a cone cut out.
r=1
h=4
v = πr^2h  π/3 r^2h = 2π/3 r^2h = 8π/3
Ok ok. If you want to use calculus, then with shells,
v = ∫[0,1] 2πrh dx
where r=x and h=y=4x
v = ∫[0,1] 2πx*4x dx = 8π/3
using discs (washers) you get
v = ∫[0,4] π(R^2r^2) dy
where R=1 and r=x=y/4
∫[0,4] π(1y^2/16) dy = 8π/3posted by Steve

We have to use the Surface area of revolution formula
