Integral Over a Sphere with dirac delta function

  1. Aug 7, 2009 #1

    I am not really sure whether its over the surface of the sphere or the Volume,

    the problem and the solution are given below, I want to know how it has been solved.
    The [tex]\delta_{0}[/tex] is the dirac delta function.


    the following variable substitution has been made,


    Thanx a lot.

    I Just got it,

    I used this substitution.

    \intop_{0}^{\pi}\intop_{0}^{2\pi}f(cos\varphi sin\theta,sin\varphi sin\theta,cos\theta)sin\theta d\theta d\varphi\][/tex]

    the radius that i used in the variable substitution is not the same as the unit radius.
