The question appears to be incomplete as the equation of the curve is not given whose volume is to be determined between the limits x=5 and x=24.

Please provide equation of the curve.

You need to remember the formula that gives the volume of solid of revolution such that:

Notice in this formula the presence of the equation of the curve that needs to be rotated, hence, the problem needs to provide the equation of f(x).
