We recognise that this is an ellipse. The question tells us the area of interest is in the first quadrant only.

The ellipse *x*^{2} + 4*y*^{2} = 4, showing the portion bounded by the curve, *x* = 0, *x* = 2 and the *x*-axis.

From the diagram, we can see that the limits of the bounded area are *y* = 0 and *y = *1.

Hence the volume generated is:

`"Vol"=pi int_c^d x^2 dy`

`=pi int_0^1 (4-4y^2) dy`

`=pi[4y-(4y^3)/(3)]_0^1`

`=pi[4-4/3] - pi[0]`

`=(8pi)/(3)\ text[units]^3`

`~~8.378\ text[units]^3`
