find the area of surface generated by revolving the are about y axis

The question is x = (e^t)(cos t), y = (e^t)(sin t), about y axis, where y = between 0 and 1.
I have problem of finding the value of t when 1 = (e^t)(cos t) and also 0 = (e^t)(cos t), since the integral can't be integrated, so I let is as I .
How to continue from my working?

The image is very difficult to read. That might account for the lack of reply.
