Say I have a solid given using polar coordinates(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I want to compute its volume.

We know that when switching from cartesian to polar, dV becomes [tex]\rho^{2}\sin\phi d\rho d\theta d\phi[/tex]

But I am not converting from cartesian to polar, I am already in polar coordinates.

do I still have to carry the [tex]\rho^{2}\sin\phi[/tex] that comes from the dV conversion formula?
