Homework Help: Finding bounds on triple integral?

  1. Nov 1, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Integrate the function over the solid given by the "slice" of an ice-cream cone in the first octant bounded by the planes x=0 and and contained in a sphere centered at the origin with radius 20 and a cone opening upwards from the origin with top radius 16.



    2. Relevant equations

    x=psin(phi)cos(theta)
    y=psin(phi)sin(theta)
    z=pcos(phi)

    p^2=x^2+y^2+z^2

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I don't understand how to get the x y and z bounds from the equations given.

    Hi beallio! :smile:

    Hint: horizontal slices of thickness dz, again, just like the other problem. :wink:
