Using the method of cylindrical shells is preferable when rotating around a vertical axis. This method integrates the lateral surface area of one of those shells. In this case, the height of a cylindrical shell is √x and the radius to the line x=6 is 6-x.

2π ∫rh dx

= 2π ∫(6-x)√x dx, from x = 0 to 6

= 2π ∫6x^½ - x^(3/2) dx, from x = 0 to 6

= 2π [4x^(3/2) - (2/5)x^(5/2)], from x = 0 to 6

= 2π [4·6^(3/2) - (2/5)·6^(5/2)]

= 2π [(4/6)6^(5/2) - (2/5)·6^(5/2)]

= 2π [(2/3)6^(5/2) - (2/5)·6^(5/2)]

= 2π [(4/15)·6^(5/2)]

= 2π [(4/15)·36√6]

= 96π√6 / 5

Using the method of cylindrical shells is preferable when rotating around a vertical axis. This method integrates the lateral surface area of one of those shells. In this case, the height of a cylindrical shell is √x and the radius to the line x=9 is 9-x.

2π ∫rh dx

= 2π ∫(9-x)√x dx, from x = 0 to 6

= 2π ∫9x^½ - x^(3/2) dx, from x = 0 to 6

= 2π [6x^(3/2) - (2/5)x^(5/2)], from x = 0 to 6

= 2π [6·6^(3/2) - (2/5)·6^(5/2)]

= 2π [6^(5/2) - (2/5)·6^(5/2)]

= 2π [(3/5)·6^(5/2)]

= 2π [(3/5)·36√6]

= 216π√6 / 5
