Integration extends to the third dimension with the means to compute the volumes of shapes obtained by revolving regions around an axis, such as spheres, toroids, and paraboloids.

Let \(V\) be the volume of the solid obtained by revolving the curve \( x^2+y^2 -100 =0 \) from \( x = 0\) to \(x=4\) about the \(x\)-axis. What is \(3 V? \)
