so, for b, I've chosen to revolves the curve around the y axis, with the top curves volume being measures from 12 to 7, and the bottom one 8 to 7. I've subtracted the volume of the bottom curve from the top. however this doesnt give me the right answer.

You've rotated around the wrong axis. The question makes it clear that you need to rotate around the x-axis.

No. It will create an entirely different shape (ie a ring, and not some kind of weird eggshell thingy!!)

Definetly not.

think about the volume your creating as you pull the 2D cross section around the axis.

You might find it useful to develop your Geogebra/Autograph skills to draw 3D shapes. Good fun (in a strange sort of way). Also highly useful for drawing parametric curves, amongst other things.

I totally see it now - I hadn't had my morning coffee and was feeling a little sluggish.
