# When to use spherical and cylindrical coordinates?

For example with a paraboloid, which do i use? Im also slightly confused with the limits in the integral. If doing a triple integral with drdθdΦ i understand the limits of the dr integral but when it comes to dθ and dΦ i dont understand why sometimes its 0 to 2π or 0 to π etc.
For example with this case: a paraboloid that has the following equation z = x^2 + y^2
and z <= 9
What i tried doing is using cylindrical (dont really know why), with dz having limits 0 to 9, but i dont get what dr and dθ would be.
