Find the total charge inside the volume indicated:

[tex]\rho_v=10z^2\rho^{-0.1x}\sin(y\pi) for -1\leq x\leq 2,0\leq y\leq 1,3\leq z \leq3.6[/tex]

I know I have to integrate over the volume [tex]dxdydz[tex], but [tex]\rho^{-.1x}[tex] just keeps giving me a problem. Is there a substitution that I'm missing here. Integrating by parts just gives a more complicated integral. I've tried converting [tex]\rho[tex] to [tex]\sqrt{x^2+y^2}[tex], but that doesn't help either. Any help would be appreciated.
