comment show that a cone is a ruled surface
I appreciate the detailed answer but I am still confused. We didn't cover this topic in the course and I just wrote the practice final and again another question about this topic was on it. This time the question was: The hyperboloid of one sheet $x^2+y^2-z^2 = 1$ is called a ruled surface, which is to say that it is made up of straight lines. Prove this by showing that for any $\theta$, the line $$\frac{x - cos\theta}{sin\theta} = \frac{y-sin\theta}{-cos\theta} = z/1$$ lies entirely on the surface... I would really appreciate more help if you don't mind.

comment Find integral of a polar function $h(r,\theta)$ over a circle
The question I originally asked was copied word for word from our review sheet.

comment Find integral of a polar function $h(r,\theta)$ over a circle
So would the integral then be: $\int_0^{2\pi} \int_0^{2acos\theta} rcos\theta rdrd\theta$ ??

comment tricky surface integral
How did you go from the first line of your integral to the second line with the substitution $x=\frac{1}{\sqrt{2}} tan(t)$. I did the substitution but it brought me to the integral $\sqrt{2} \int_0^1 sec(t) dx$

comment tricky surface integral
Ok. I was also looking online... Could I also use the formula for $\int \sqrt{a^2 +x^2} dx = \frac x2 \sqrt{a^2+x^2} + \frac{a^2}2 ln|x+\sqrt{a^2+x^2}|$ using $a=\sqrt{2}$ and $x=2x$ to get the final answer???

comment Volume integral over a bounded region
Yes this was helpful however this integral seems to be very complex unless I screwed up. Anyways this is where I learned how to format questions and give detail: meta.math.stackexchange.com/questions/5020/…

sorry nvm, I just miss read. you did put the limits of r.
