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

Find the mass and center of mass of the solid S bounded by the paraboloid [tex]z=4x^2+4y^2[/tex] and the plane [tex]z=a\;\;(a>0)[/tex] if S has constant density K.

2. Relevant equations

In cylindrical coordinates, [tex]x^2+y^2=r^2[/tex].

3. The attempt at a solution

In order to find the mass, I tried

[tex]\int _0^{2\pi }\int _0^a\int _0^{\frac{\sqrt{z}}{2}}K\;drdzd\theta[/tex]

This didn't seem to work, though.
