# Volumes of Rotation

Announcements Posted on
Last day to win £100 of Amazon vouchers - don't miss out! Take our quick survey to enter 24-10-2016
1. Prove that the volume of the solid generated by completely rotating the function y = 6/ (2x + 1) ^1/2
about the x-axis between x=0 and x=4 is 36pi ln 3 units^2

this is what i get?

y^2 = 36/(2x +1)

V= pi [18ln9] - [18ln1]

i dont know where ive gone wrong
2. apart from not putting π outside brackets it looks OK ?

the problem is i'm not proving it as 18ln9 -18ln1 x π doesnt = 36π ln3
