  1. I will assume your curve is y = x^3

    first part:
    Volume = π∫y^2 dx from 0 to 3
    = π∫x^6 dx from 0 to 3
    = π[(1/7)x^7] from 0 to 3
    = π(2187/7 - 0) = 2187π/7

    2nd part
    (you will need x = .... from y = x^3
    x^3 = y
    x = y^(1/3)

    vol = π∫(3 - y^(1/3) )^2 dy from y = 0 to y = 27
    expand, then integrate etc.
