volumes of solids of revolution

I have studied the Mathematica manuals and I have been 
unable to find how to graphically illustrate "slicing" 
to find volumes of solids generated by rotating about a 
line.  I am interested in helping my calculus students 
visualize disk slicing and cylindrical shell slicing.

If anyone knows a URL or other reference I can use, 
please let me know.

Thank you!
