So I am working on some volume problems and I am understanding most of context, but I am getting hung up on which formula to use for x vs y axis rotations. Example: "Find the volume of the region by revolving the region about the y-axis". The region enclosed by $\displaystyle x=y^\frac13, x=0, y=8$ A. $\displaystyle \frac{96}5\pi$ B. $\displaystyle 32\pi$ C. $\displaystyle 16\pi$ D. $\displaystyle 12\pi$ So which values do I use for the bounds of the integral? $\displaystyle \int_0^{y^\frac13}$????? And will the formula look like the following?: $\displaystyle \int_0^{y^\frac13}2\pi x {8}$ Do I have this backwards?
