This is an area problem, not volume of revolution

It does not supply an axis of rotation.

First equation is for revolution on x-axis and y-axis for second one.

If that is the case, you integrate ∫[7 (sec x) - 7 (tan x)] dx with upper limit pi/4 and lower limit 0.
 
You will get, 7 [ln |sec x + tan x| - ln |cos x|].  As you put 0, you will get 0 because ln 1 is 0.  As you put pi/4, you will get, 7 [ln  |√ 2+ 1| - ln |√ 2/2|].
 
Maybe this is what you looking for.  Sorry for misunderstanding.
