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

Evaluate [tex]\int \int \int_E x^2 \, dV[/tex] where E is the solid that lies within the cylinder [tex]x^2+y^2=1[/tex], above the plane [tex]z=0[/tex], and below the cone [tex]z^2=4x^2+4y^2[/tex].

2. Relevant equations

In cylindrical coordinates, [tex]x^2+y^2=r^2[/tex] and [tex]x=r\cos{\theta}[/tex].

3. The attempt at a solution

I tried [tex]\int _0^{2\pi }\int _0^1\int _{-2r}^{2r}r^2 cos^2\theta\;\;r\;\;dzdrd\theta[/tex] but I must have messed up the bounds somehow.

Any ideas?
