Multivariable Calculus: Triple Integral - Cylindrical Coordinates

Question: Solve by triple integration in cylindrical coordinates. Assume that each solid has unit density unless another density function is specified:

Find the volume of the region bounded above by the spherical surface x^2 + y^2 + z^2 = 2 and below by the paraboloid z = x^2 + y^2.

Solution Preview

We define
x=rcos(theta)
y=rsin(theta)
z=r
then the jacobian would be r. We must find
