    Triple Integrals In Cylindrical Coordinates.

    Using cylindrical coordinates, evaluate (OVER R) \int \int \int \sqrt{x^2+y^2} dV , where the solid R is bounded by the surfaces z=\sqrt{x^2+y^2} and z=5.

    OK, I know how to graph these two surfaces, But how in the earth can I find the limits of the integration?
    the " dz" limits: 5 \rightarrow r
    but what about " d\theta" and " dr" ??!

    the inside integral \int_r^5 ( \cdot) dz

    The two surfaces intersect giving a circle of radius 5. This is the region for the outer two integrals.

    Nyahahahaa
    I got it
    But there is a little problem
    why is it from r to 5 ?
    why not from 5 to r ?

    The cone ( z=r) is below the plane ( z=5).

    hmmmm
    I did not memorize the shapes
    THANK YOU

    Well, you don't have to memorize the shapes. At (0,0), z= 0 for the cone and z= 5 for the plane. 5> 0.

    Also it is neither "from r to 5" nor "from 5 to r". It is "r ranges from 0 to 5".
