Triple Integrals
I am currently taking Calc 3 at college and I ran across a small problem with this one triple integral I am trying to work out (The problem is written as Example 1 in the book work document· So far I have had no luck in finding someone who could help me. If you can't help me it's okay, I am just trying to figure out what I am doing wrong. Attached is a copy of the problem from the book and how they did it with the final integration being from 0 to pi/2 and a copy of my work with the final integration being from 0 to pi. According to my professor it should be the same but I am not getting the same answer with this problem or the actual problem I have to do. Any help will be appreciated and if you can't help I understand.

Please try to help if you can...

I think the theta angle is defined in a funny way in that excercise. If you have r going from zero to $$2 \sin \theta$$, then it goes from zero to zero.
