  • Area bounded by the curve $t=f(x),$ the x-axis and the ordinates $x=a,x=b$ is $\int \limits_a^b f(x) dx $ or $ \int \limits _a^b y dx $
  • If the curve lies below the x-axis for $a \leq x \leq b,$ then the area is $\int \limits_a^b (-y) dx=\int \limits_a^b (-f(x))dx$
Step 1:
$\pi \large\frac{r^2}{h^2}\bigg[\frac{x^3}{3}\bigg]_0^h$
$\quad=\large\frac{1}{3} $$\pi r^2 h \;units$
Step 2:
The volume of the solid generated by the shaded region about the x axis is $v=\int \limits_0^1 \pi y^2 dx$
Step 3:
$\qquad=\pi \int \limits_0^1 \large\frac{1}{x^2}\;$$dx$
$\qquad=\pi \bigg[\large\frac{-1}{x}\bigg]_0^1$
