The region under the graph of y=lnx between x-1 and x=3 is rotated through 2pi radians about the x-axis to from a solid revolution.
b) by using substitution x=e^u, find the exact value of the volume

I've got that x^2=e^2u and dx=ue^u du so it's pi ∫ ln (e^2u) ue^u du

You have to integrate y^2 not x^2

Do you know the formula for revolution around the x axis?

Integrate y^2 and multiply by 2Π

so it's ln(e^u)^2 ue^u du? How do you integrate that?

so then how do you integrate the whole thing? Btw the answer is pi[3ln(3)^2 -6ln3+4]

You made an error in calculating dx, you have x=e^u so dx/du=e^u so dx=e^u du

Oh yeah, thanks! So now would you integrate by parts?

Yes. In the OP you put b) before the question, I am guessing that there was a part a) which may help. What was the full question?
