Finding a volume using calculus generally involves an integral, there are several methods which can be used to solve such a problem. Do you recall seeing something having to do with "disks"?

F(R, S, T)=(R\cos(S)\sin(T), R\sin(S)\sin(T), R\cos(T))

(the change into spherical coordinates).

The absolute value of its Jacobian is R^2\sin(T).

Your domain of integration (cap) is defined by

{(x, y, z) : x^2 + y^2 + z^2 \leq r^2 , r-h \leq z \leq r}

and its pre-image through F is

D=[0,r]x[0,2\pi]x[0,T_0],

where T_0 satisfies \cos(T_0)=(r-h)/r=1-h/r.

Volume = \int_{D}R^2\sin(T)dRdSdT

= (\int_0^rR^2dR).(\int_0^{2\pi}dS).(\int_…

= 1/3r^3.2\pi.(1-\cos(T_0)) = 2\pi.h.r^2/3.

QED.
