Find the volume of the solid E bounded by z = 3+x^{2}+y^{2}and z = 6.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I'm going to use cylindrical coordinates. So, I have,

z = 3 + r^{2}

Clearly, my bounds on z are 3 and 6. If I project the intersection of the paraboloid and the plan onto the xy-plane, I have 3 = r^2. My bounds on r are then 0 and ±√3, but I reject the negative boundary. I will use the bounds 0 and 2*pi for θ, though I don't know how these bounds are known to be appropriate. So, if I perform a triple integral of r in the order dz dr dθ, I get an answer of 9*pi.

Does that sound legitimate?
