To find the volume of the solid obtained by revolving the curve x = 3cos^3(t), y = 5sin^3(t) about the x-axis, you can use the method of cylindrical shells or disk/washer method. With cylindrical shells, you integrate the circumference of each shell multiplied by its height. With the disk/washer method, you integrate the area of each disk or washer created by revolving the curve.

Let's use the disk/washer method:

- Determine the limits of integration for t.
- Express the volume element dV in terms of t.
- Integrate dV over the appropriate interval.

For this curve, t ranges from 0 to π/2.

The volume element dV is given by dV = πy^2 dx, where y = 5sin^3(t) and dx = -9cos^2(t)sin(t) dt.

Integrate dV from t = 0 to t = π/2 to find the total volume of the solid.

V = ∫[0,π/2] π(5sin^3(t))^2 (-9cos^2(t)sin(t)) dt

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
