1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
The question is to use matlab to evaluate a triple integral in spherical coordinates to find the mass density of the solid inside the cone z = (3x^2 + 3y^2)^.5 and below z = 5 where the mass density at (x,y,z) is equal to the z coordinate of the point. 2. Relevant equations This is what I was doing. I'm using p for rho, f for phi, and t for theta to type it into matlab. I'm saying that p goes from 3 (or 0, i'm not sure....) to 5sec(f). Then f goes from 0 to pi/6 and t goes from 0 to 2pi. I'm integrating p^3*cos(f)*sin(t). I typed it in as: syms p f t int(int(int(cos(f)*sin(t)*p^3,p,3,5*sec(f)),f,0,pi/6),t,0,2*pi) but matlab tells me that the answer is 0, which definitely isn't true, which means that I did something wrong somewhere! I know this might be hard to follow, but can someone spot my mistake? 3. The attempt at a solution
