# Solid of revolution — shell method [closed]

I'm trying to plot the solid of revolution obtained by rotating the region enclosed by $$y=x^{1/2}$$ and $$y=0$$, with $$x$$ going from $$0$$ to $$4$$, about the line $$x=5$$.

{y==x^(1/2), y==0}


I cannot find any examples of it, only rotations about the line $$x=0$$.

• Perhaps https://reference.wolfram.com/language/ref/RevolutionAxis.html will help – Bill Aug 19 '18 at 5:08
• I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it's a homework problem, with no effort shown, thus outside the scope of the forum. – Daniel Lichtblau Nov 19 '18 at 22:05
