Spherical coordinates?

  • #1
Integrate the function
f(x,y,z)=6*x+5*y over the solid given by the "slice" of an ice-cream cone in the first
octant bounded by the planes x=0 and y=sqrt(43/5)*x and contained in a sphere centered at
the origin with radius 13 and a cone opening upwards from the origin with top radius 12.

I have no idea as to how to even start. I would really like someone to take the time to guide me through this problem.

Have you any examples like this in your textbook, or your course notes? It would help if you draw a diagram first, so you know the limits of integration.
