Spherical coordinates

  1. Mar 11, 2009 #1
    After converting a surface over the region that [tex]\rho[/tex]=sin[tex]\phi[/tex]cos[tex]\theta[/tex]/a + sin[tex]\phi[/tex]sin[tex]\theta[/tex]/b + cos[tex]\phi[/tex]/c
    I also have that this region is equal to 1.

    I cant seem to get anywhere..

    Well, [itex]\rho[/itex] can't be less than 0. What is the maximum value of [itex]\rho[/itex]?

    the max is one.

    Moneyjane,

    Could you show your work to get to the maximum of 1 ?

    Thanks
