## Surface area of Elliptic paraboloid

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)
