Ok so what we need is a function to be integrated.

Consider the equation, (x-r)^2 +y^2 =r^2 (perhaps sketch it)

How might that help?

How would I sketch that? Also I can see it can be re-arranged to y^2=.... as whatever I am integrating needs to be squared and multiplied by pi though I still don't know what the limits should be.

At C4 you should be able to sketch a circle. You will be able to see what the limits are once you have sketched it. http://www.wolframalpha.com/ if you really can't sketch.

Don't really see how I can sketch that or even work out the limits from looking at it.

You can see how the sketch relates to the question as if you rotate that curve with R at the bottom you see it is like the picture in the question, the limits would follow from that.

Do I look at the bowl from a birds eye perspective?

No, from front on so you see a half circle with a shaded area.

Then do I rotate it 90 degree clockwise so it fits the x and y axis chart?

The axes are arbitrary, you just need to be able to see how one corresponds with the other, (ignore the top half of the circle.)

Thanks. It's a bit hard to tell what length h covers in relation to r by looking at the pic in the question, this makes everything much clearer
