Problem:
Using the disk (slab) method, approximate the volume of the solid of revolution which is obtained by rotating the area of the region bounded by the graphs of the function

f(x) = x3 - x + 1

the lines x = -1, x = 1 and the x-axis around the x-axis.


Visualization:

These graphs were generated by Microcalc.
For this visualization, we have detailed instructions for the following software packages:
