# 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.

We define

x=rcos(theta)

y=rsin(theta)

z=r

then the jacobian would be r. We must find
