Use the method of cylindrical shells to find the volume generated by rotating the region bounded by the given curves about the specified axis.

y = x3, y = 8, x = 0, about x = 5

Step 1

Please see the attached diagram on the white board. Please see it crefully and locate the lines, curve and points of interest. Please see the point P (x, y)

x = 5 is the axis of rotation. The cylindrical shell will have a volume, dV = 2πrh.dx

h = 8 - y = 8 - x3

r = 5 - x

Limits of integration will be x = 0 to x = 2

Step 2

hence, dV = 2π(5 - x)(8 - x3)dx

Pleas...
