Finding Vol using double int- some messy domain

    [SOLVED] Finding Vol using double int- some messy domain

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

    I think r should not go from 0 to 2*cos theta
    because it should go from that parabola like arc to the disk ..

    so, why they don't consider this?

    Second: I always worked with triples to find volumes, but here I guess I can't use it?
    Why they used x^2+y^2? **<nvm about this .. height*dA = V)**

    I ignored this example for the whole semester, and discovered all the mess in it today ><

    >>>>> Edit 2: They just said Area*height! <<<<<
