Find the equation of the tangent to the parabola y=2x^2 at (1,2). Calculate its point of intersection with the x-axis and the volume of the solid formed when the area between the parabola, the tangent line and the x axis is revolved about the axis.
got a different answer, its apparently 2pi/3 for the volume

Well done. You are extremely close.

What you have sort of done is said,

(a+b)^2 = a^2 + b^2 # However this is not true since (a+b)^2 = a^2 + b^2 + 2ab.

So what you should have as your integrand i.e. what your integrating is (2x^2 - 4x + 2)^2 # the square is because area circle is pi*r^2.

(2x^2 - 4x + 2)(2x^2 - 4x + 2)

Once we expand this we get: All that is left now is is integrate with respect x with bounds from 0 to 1, and don't forget to times by pi.
