In spherical coordinates we have

$\displaystyle x=r\sin(\theta)\cos(\phi) \quad y=r\sin(\theta)\sin(\phi) \quad z=r\cos(\theta)$

and

$\displaystyle x^2+y^2+z^2=r^2$

Since you want a hemisphere the azimuthal angle theta will be in

$\displaystyle \theta \in \left[0,\frac{\pi}{2} \right]$

$\displaystyle \phi \in [0,2\pi]$

$\displaystyle r \in [0,a]$

Don't forget the Jacobian is

$\displaystyle dV=r^2\sin(\theta)\dr d\theta d\phi$ - May 12th 2011, 04:32 AMqwerty1234
