(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

I am having so much trouble with this one problem ( and spherical coordinates in general ).

Any help would be amazing:

∫∫∫ 1 / √(x^{2}+y^{2}+z^{2})

Over -4≤x≤4, 0≤y≤√(16-x^{2}), 0≤z≤√(16-x^{2}-y^{2})

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I know that rho^{2}will replace √(x^{2}+y^{2}+z^{2}) in my integral, but I am having a really hard time understanding what my limits of integration should be for rho,phi, and theta. I think it is some sort of a snow cone, where theta is from 0 to pi/2 but I'm really not sure.
