Homework Help: Cylindrical coordinate

  1. Nov 28, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    In cylindrical coordinates write a function which describes the surface of the dome (brunelleshci's dome) whose center is not on the central axis but rather one-fifth of the way from the edge. the sides form a shape called quinto acuto, span of base of dome is 143 find height, and volume

    2. Relevant equations
    in the form z=f(r)


    3. The attempt at a solution

    I know how to get height and volume but i can't seem to get a function in the form of z=f(r)
