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

Convert the following integral to an equivalent integral in spherical coordinates.

Do NOT evaluate the integral.

∫∫∫ r^3 dz dr dtheta

limits of integration

pi/4<theta<pi/2

0<r<2

0<z<√(2r-r^2)

2. Relevant equations

z=pcos(theta)

r^2=x^2 +y^2

p^2=x^2 +y^2 +z^2

theta=theta

3. The attempt at a solution

My problem is not converting the actual integrand but finding the new limits of integration. I realize that the theta limits will stay the same, but I am not sure how to find the rho or phi limits.

I have found through conversions that the new integrand will be

∫∫∫(p^5)sin(phi)^4 dp dphi dtheta
