Homework Help: Compute the volume of another solide

  1. Sep 28, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Compute the volume of the solid bounded by the surface z = sin(y), the planes x = 1, x = 0, y = 0, and y = pi/2, and the xy plane.

    2. Relevant equations


    3. The attempt at a solution

    Double Integral sin(y) dA

    where the limits of integration is:

    0 </ x </ 1

    0 </ y </ pi/2

    After calculating the double integral, I got 1. Can anyone verify my work?

    I get V = 1 as well.
