(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

I have to find the volume of the region bounded by a cone and cylinder. (double integral style!)

I usually start off with a sketch, but I can't seem to figure out what this one quadratic surface looks like...

It's a cylinder (in 3-dimensional plane): x^{2}+y^{2}=2ay

3. The attempt at a solution

I know that the equation of a cylinder is just x^2+y^2=a in 3-d. I also know the equations of a hyperbolic, oblique, and parabolic cylinder......but I don't think this is one of those.

Anyone willing to help me out, or at least point me in some sort of direction!

Thanks.
