 P: 5 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Given the elliptic paraboloid of height H and two semiaxes A and B. How to find its surface area? 2. Relevant equations x = A * sqrt(u) * cos(v) y = B * sqrt(u) * sin(v) z = u u belongs to [0; H], v belongs to [0; 2*PI)
 Sci Advisor HW Helper Thanks P: 25,174 Try using formula 2 in http://mathworld.wolfram.com/SurfaceArea.html
 P: 33 Formula No. 4 is even better......cant get any easier!

## Surface area of Elliptic paraboloid

I think he means do a double integral chaps.
 HW Helper P: 1,585 I thought about: $$A=\int\int dxdy$$ But I guess you idea is better.
