Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

nteresting, usually the method of cylindrical shells is used when finding the volume of the solid obtained by rotating about y-axis.

Vy = 2pi*[a;b] ∫ x*f(x) dx

Bur I suppose that it can be used analogically about x-axis

Vx = 2pi*[c;d] ∫ y*g(y) dy

Given function is 125y = x^3 -----> x = (125y)^1/3 = 5*y^1/3.

Then
Vx = 2pi*[0; 8] ∫ y* 5*y^1/3 dy = 10pi * [0; 8] ∫ y^4/3 dy =

= 10pi *3/7 * y^7/3 [0; 8] = 30pi/7 * 8^7/3 = 30pi/7 * 2^7 =

=30pi/7 *128 = 3840pi/7

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
