For part b) if p(x,y,z) were the material density in grams / cc and the surface of the object made out of this material had the equation x^2+y^z = a*z, how would you calculate the total mass of the object? For part b), instead of density, assume p(x,y,z) is the amount of charge over a unit portion of the volume of the object.

I'm sorry but I'm really not following. I guess I could find mass by using m=(density)(volume) but I'm still uncertain on how to express the volume of this object.

Do you recognize:

[tex] Q = \int_{\mathcal{V}} \rho d\tau^{'} [/tex]

This is the general equation for total charge over a volume with a given charge density
