Question

# In this exercise, find the volume of the solid generated by revolving the region bounded by the graphs of the equations about the $x$-axis. Verify your results using the integration capabilities of a graphing utility.$y=\cos x, \quad y=0, \quad x=0, \quad x=\dfrac{\pi}{2}$

In this exercise, we are given a function and three lines. The region between all of those is rotated about the $x$-axis and we have to find the volume of the object created by such rotation using the graphing utility.

$y=f(x)=\cos x$

$y=0$

$x=0$

$x=\dfrac \pi 2$
