Given a function y = f(x) of a single variable x, we know that the definite integral:
Integral { f(x) dx, x = a to b }
gives the area under the curve y = f(x), between the portions x = a and x = b.
Similarly, for a function z = f(x, y) of two variables x and y, we can use double integration to find the volume under the surface defined by z = f(x, y) over a rectangular portion of the xy plane (this rectangular region being defined by the limits of integration).
Here, the function is:
z = 1  ...
Solution Summary
Finding the volume of a solid region by using double integration is a standard problem in multivariable calculus. This solution demonstrates the method by means of an example worked out in detail.
