Find the mass of the following object with the given density function:

The ball of radius 8 centered at the origin with a density f(ρ,ϕ,θ) = 2e^-p^3

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I know that I need to integrate the density function, but I'm not sure what limits to use. My book tells me that a sphere with radius a centered at the origin has the description: {(ρ,ϕ,θ): p=a}, a>0. However, I'm not exactly getting how this helps me find the limits.
