evaluate the iterated integral by converting to polar coordinates

integral, integral x^{2}dxdy, the limits are 4 to 0 for the outer integral, and /sqrt(4y-y^{2}) to 0 for the inner integral.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

well x=rcos(/theta) so x^{2}= (rcos(/theta))^{2},

however I have trouble converting the limits to polar coordinates here, I think the outer integrals limits here are from /pi/2 to 0 , and the inner integrals limits are from 1 to 0.

Is this set up correct so far?

So I have, integral, integral r^{2}cos(/theta)^{2}limits from /pi/2 to 0, and 1 to 0
