Spherical coordinates . Then you can do trig sub
Find the area of that part of the surface z = xy inside the cylinder x^2 +y^2 = a^2.
Well I don't know what the surface looks like but I have an idea of what the cylinder looks like.
It's like drawing a circle in the xy plane centered at the origin with radius a and pulling that circle in the z direction to create a cylinder.
Again, I don't know what surface looks like but the area of the surface should be
If I take the partials accordingly and plug them in I get
now I'm stuck.
Any ideas?
