(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Find the total mass that occupies a solid region D bounded by a sphere of radius 3

centered at the origin and z = 1 if the density of the function is (x, y, z) = 1/1+x^2+y^2+z^2 .

I would like to be able to do this problem using spherical coordinates but I am unsure about how this z=1 will affect my bounds of integration for both phi and rho.
