8-109.

Given that a typical cross-section of a solid taken perpendicular to the *x*-axis has an area of , set-up an integral to calculate the volume of this solid from [

*]. Does it matter what the shape of the solid is? Explain.*

Of course every shape has a different area function, and this area function

It is not possible to know what the cross-sections looks like. Perhaps they are rectangles with height
