I am confused about when a double integral will give you an area, and when it will give you a volume. Since we are integrating with respect to two variables, wouldn't that always give us an area? Don't we need a third variable in order to find the volume? Thanks for the help.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
