    Everything was going fine until I bumped into this...

    (b^2*c^2*Cos[x]^2*Sin[y]^4 + a^2*c^2*Sin[y]^4*Sin[x]^2)^(1/2)

    ...integrate that with respect to y, for the boundaries y=0..Pi.

    A Jacobian Transformation would be a good start, but I have no idea what functions I would use to simplify that in such a way to make it easier.

    Any hints would be great.

    Nevermind I got it.

    I did a little mistake. I miss read the exponents of the previous integral.

    Thanks for stopping by though.
