Consider a sphere of radius r where its density at any point is f(d) with d being the distance of the point from the origin and f(d) being an algebraic function and thus integrable. What is the function (ideally expressed as one integral & using constants such as Pi) for the mass of the sphere? PS please also supply the proof.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
