9-10.

Use the washer method to find the volume of the solid generated by revolving the region bounded by *y *= *x*^{2} and *x*-axis. Homework Help ✎

Start by determining the points of intersection. The *x*-values of the points of intersection will be the bounds of your integral (this is rotation about the *x*-axis, so the width of the washers is *dx*).

The general formula for the washer method is:

Which function is the outer radius *R* and which function is the inner radius *r*?
