The diagram shows part of the curve . The shaded region is bounded by the curve, the y- axis and the lines y = 1 and y = 2. Showing all necessary working, find the volume, in terms of ,  when this shaded region is rotated through  about the y-axis.


Expression for the volume of the solid formed when the shaded region under the curve  is rotated completely about the y-axis is;

We are given;

We can see that curve goes from 1 to 2 along y-axis.
