My program is to find the volume of the solid generated when y = x^2 bounded by y = 4, and x = 0 and revolved about the line y = 2... When they say it has a different axes of revolution do they mean they move the curve or do they mean the solid has a hole in it or what?

This particular solid will have a hole in it.

Ok I have worked a couple of problems of these and I am not seeing how they get this answer for this particular problem I understand the x^2 + 2, a left shift, but where does that 36 come from?

For an arbitrary washer, the outer radius is the distance between y = 4 and y = 2, which is 6 units. The square of this is 36.
