  1. The lune-shaped region has vertices at (0,0) and (25,5)
    So, the axis of rotation just touches the region. Using washers of thickness dx,
    v = ∫[0,25] π(R^2-r^2) dx
    where R = 5-5y = 5 - x/5 and r=5-y^2 = 5 - √x
    v = ∫[0,25] π((5 - x/5)^2-(5 - √x)^2) dx = 625π/6

    Using shells of thickness dy, we have
    v = ∫[0,5] 2πrh dy
    where r = 5-y and h = 5y-y^2
    v = ∫[0,5] 2π(5-y)(5y-y^2) dy = 625π/6
