    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data


    using spherical coordinates find the volume of the solid outside the cone z^2=x^2+y^2 and inside the sphere x^2+y^2+z^2=2

    2. Relevant equations

    ρ=x+y+z ρ^2=x^2+y^2+z^2

    dρdφdθ

    3. The attempt at a solution

    You need to try something before we can provide help.

    In your relevant equations, what is this: ρ=x+y+z ?

    And this isn't even an equation: dρdφdθ.
