Triple Integral

  1. Jul 21, 2009 #1
    Problem: Evaluate (leave in rectangular coordinates):

    \int_{-1}^{{1}}}\int_{-{\sqrt{1-x^2}}}^{{\sqrt{1-x^2}}}\int_{-{\sqrt{1-x^2-y^2}}}^{{\sqrt{1-x^2-y^2}}}\ \,dz\,dy\,dx

    Well, start slow. Can you evaluate this integral?
    \int_{-{\sqrt{1-x^2-y^2}}}^{{\sqrt{1-x^2-y^2}}}\ \,dz

    Supposedly it's easier to make a subtitution u = 1-x^2 at this point but I don't see how...
