# Thread: use triple integral to find volume of solid bounded by sphere and hyperboloid

1. ## use triple integral to find volume of solid bounded by sphere and hyperboloid

bounded below by - x^2 - y^2 + z^2=1 and above by x^2+y^2+z^2=19, for z > 0

would this be better in cylindrical? z^2 -r^2 =1 and r^2 + z^2 =19

limits:
theta: 0 to 2pi
r: 0 to sqrt 19
z: sqrt(1+r^2) to sqrt(19-r^2)

I know this is going to sound like crazy talk, especially as it's Saturday night, but this is the sort of problem where the best thing you can do is to work it both ways and see what happens. This is how you develop intuition for math.

That does sound crazy, but I will give it a shot Are my limits correct, however?

4. ## Re: use triple integral to find volume of solid bounded by sphere and hyperboloid

can someone please check my limits to see if they are correct?

5. ## Re: use triple integral to find volume of solid bounded by sphere and hyperboloid

The sphere and the hyperboloid intersect, but the sphere is above and below the enclosed volume. Do you mean to have a cylindrical wall on the side?

I think since it says for z > 0, I am looking for the volume inside the cone made by the hyperboloid which is capped by a hemisphere. I don't see where there is a cylindrical wall.

Ok, I see it now. I'm not sure what I was thinking before.

So, yes, cylindrical coordinates would work well. The intersection of the two surfaces is the circle x^2+y^2=9 in the $\displaystyle z=\sqrt{10}$ plane. So your limits are correct except r should go from 0 to $\displaystyle \sqrt{10}$.

the region bounded by the paraboloid z=sqrt(x^2+y^2) and above by the sphere x^2+y^2+z^2=6

9. ## Re: use triple integral to find volume of solid bounded by sphere and hyperboloid

You should start a new thread for a new problem.

The intersection is the circle $\displaystyle x^2+y^2=3$ in the $\displaystyle z=\sqrt{3}$ plane.

So $\displaystyle z(x,y)$ goes from $\displaystyle r$ to $\displaystyle \sqrt{6-r^2}$. Now we need to define the "floor plan", which is the circle $\displaystyle x^2+y^2=3$.

If cylindrical coordinates work for you, your integral is

$\displaystyle \int_0^{2\pi} \int_0^{\sqrt{3}} \int_r^{\sqrt{6-r^2}} r\,dz\,dr\,d\theta$

The extra $\displaystyle r$ is required for cylindrical coordinates.

The region in the first octant bounded above by the cylinder z=1-y^2 and lying between the vertical planes x+y=1 and x+y=3

If you go to Calculus - Math Help Forum, there's a button near the bottom that says "+Post New Thread".
