# Solving this triple integral

Homework Statement:
(question is attached below)
Relevant Equations:
x^2+y^2=r^2
dV=rdrdzdΘ  I am trying to solve it using cylindrical coordinates, but I am not sure whether the my description of region E is correct, whether is the value of r is 2 to 4, or have to evaluate the volume 2 times ( r from 0 to 4 minus r from 0 to 2), and whether is okay to take z from r^2/2 to 8

$$\int_2^8 dz \int_0^{2z} 2\pi \rho^3 d\rho$$

May I know which method did you use? I have no idea of it, thanks

$$\int_2^8 dz \int_0^{2z} 2\pi \rho^3 d\rho$$
Shouldn't the boundary of integration be ##\sqrt{2z}## instead of ##2z##?
