how can I solve this problem I already have the final answer but I don't know how to solve it , the answer for this problem is $(V=8(pi-1/3)$ I tried solving it with this:


but it didn't work

Write an iterated triple integral in the order dzdydx for the volume of the region bounded below by the xy-plane and above by the paraboloid $z = x^2 + y^2$ and lying inside the cylinder $x^2 + y^2 = 4$?


You should switch to cylindrical coordinates instead. Your integral will change to: $4 \int_0^2 \int_0^{\pi/2} \int_0^{\rho^2} \rho dz d\phi d\rho $

  • $\begingroup$ I suggest you to change the limits to those for quarter of a circle and then multiply by 4 It will give right answer $\endgroup$ – Tojrah Mar 22 '19 at 0:35
