    The question is: The region R is bounded by the curve y = 4 +3sec2x, the x-axis and the lines x=-pi/6 and x=pi/6. Find the volume of the solid formed by rotating R through 2pi radians about the x-axis.

    I get to the stage where I have pi (9/2tan2x + 12ln(sec2x + tan2x) + 16x) with the limits but I cant seem to get the answer in the back when I substitute which is 200.907

    The region R is bounded by the curve y = 4 +3sec2x, the x-axis and the lines x=-\frac{\pi}{6} and x=\frac{\pi}{6}. Find the volume of the solid formed by rotating R through 2\pi radians about the x-axis.
    Are you familiar with this formula:  \pi \int_a^b y^2 \ dx

    Use the pi y^2 formula

    I used the formula (That's how I got to the stage). I'm wondering if I've integrated wrong.

    You are probably expanding it wrong should get 64

    There are many ways to go about solving an integral, so just giving us the stage you got to doesn't help us much. We need line by line steps, if possible...
