    hmm … that's [tex]\int_0^2\int_0^{\sqrt{2x-x^2}}\sqrt{x^2+y^2} dxdy[/tex]

    ok … I assume you know how to convert dxdy into r and θ

    and for the limits, convert y2 ≤ 2x - x2 into r and θ also :wink:

    0≤y≤1
    0≤x≤2
    0≤r≤2
    0≤θ≤ pi/2
    :smile:

    (have a pi: π :wink:)

    No, the upper limit of r will depend on θ.

    I repeat … convert y2 ≤ 2x - x2 into r and θ
