1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
Find the volume bounded by sphere rho = rt. 6 and the paraboloid z = x^2 + y^2
and locate the centroid of this region

The attempt at a solution

So Thats the integral that I made for this problem, but I'm having trouble integrating it. the rdr throws it off.

You first integrate with z, that gives you rz in the inside. Using Fubini you get (meaning evaluate the integral) $$r\sqrt{6-r^2} - r(r^2)$$ and now continue with r and theta.

So when i evaluate it, I get -12pi rt6 as the answer.
Am I doing it wrong? I feel like im not doing right. If you could, could I see how someone would do a problem like this? Evaluating integrals is a little confusing for me.

And then I need lots of help on the centroid part as well. Thanks~
