## Question:

Find the volume V of the solid obtained by rotating the region bounded by the curves {eq}y = \displaystyle\frac{7}{x}, x = 1, x = 4, y = 0 {/eq} about the x-axis.

## Calculating Volume using the Disk Method:

A solid of revolution can be generated by graphing the function {eq}y = f(x) \geq 0 {/eq} on the interval {eq}a \leq x \leq b, {/eq} then revolving the graph around the {eq}x {/eq} axis. The volume is

{eq}V = \pi \displaystyle\int_a^b (f(x))^2 \: dx. {/eq}

## Answer and Explanation:

We can calculate this volume using the Disk Method:

{eq}\begin{eqnarray*}V & = & \pi \int_1^4 \left( \displaystyle\frac{7}{x} \right)^2 \: dx \\ &...
