Find the volume of the solid obtained by rotating the region bounded by the given curves about the specified line. Sketch the region, the solid, and a typical disk or washer.

**y = x3, y = 0, x = 1; about x = 2**

## Answer

When we rotate a thin vertical strip as shown in the figure, about the line x = 2.

We get a cylindrical shell with a radius 2 – x

The height of the cylindrical shell is x^3

To find the complete volume, we will integrate from 0 to 1,
