Homework Help: Double Integral - polar coordinates

  1. Apr 25, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    \displaystyle\int\int\sqrt{4-x^2-y^2} dA

    R{(x,y)|x^2+y^2\leq4 .. 0\leq x}

    3. The attempt at a solution

    So far i have:

    \displaystyle\int^{\pi}_{0}\int^{r}_{0}\sqrt{4-r^2} rdrd\theta

    Solving i get:


    Am i on the right track, and if so how do i integrate the third root term?


    ok i forgot the radius goes from 0 to 2... if i sub 2 into r, i can integrate it. But just to check, am i still doing this correctly?

    Yes, you should integrate from zero to 2.
