What is Triple integral: Definition and 321 Discussions

In mathematics (specifically multivariable calculus), a multiple integral is a definite integral of a function of several real variables, for instance, f(x, y) or f(x, y, z). Integrals of a function of two variables over a region in



{\displaystyle \mathbb {R} ^{2}}
(the real-number plane) are called double integrals, and integrals of a function of three variables over a region in



{\displaystyle \mathbb {R} ^{3}}
(real-number 3D space) are called triple integrals. For multiple integrals of a single-variable function, see the Cauchy formula for repeated integration.

    Confused about polar integrals and setting up bounds

    So I want to subtract the two surfaces, right? I really don't know where to start... I am guessing this would be some sort of triple integral, however I am very confused with the bounds. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!!

    Why this triple integral is not null?

    Greetings here is my integral Compute the volume of the solid and here is the solution (that I don't agree with) So as you can see they started integrating sinx from 0 to pi and then multiplied everything by two! for me sin(x) is an odd function and it's integral should be 0 over symmetric...

    Is the Triple Integral in Cylindrical Coordinates Correctly Solved?

    I am trying to solve it using cylindrical coordinates, but I am not sure whether the my description of region E is correct, whether is the value of r is 2 to 4, or have to evaluate the volume 2 times ( r from 0 to 4 minus r from 0 to 2), and whether is okay to take z from r^2/2 to 8
