Homework Help: Physics volume problem

  1. Jan 15, 2006 #1
    Hi,

    been solving another volume problem here and though it seemed very straightforward, I'm getting very ugly integrals so it rather seems that I haven't chosen appropriate approach. I scanned how I did it, first in cartesian coordinates:

    and then in spherical coordinates:

    Neither of them seems useful...or maybe I'm substituting it wrongly.

    A is the set the volume of which I'm trying to compute.

    Thank you for any advices.

    I got it, I really didn't choose the best approach.
