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.
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 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 plane. So your limits are correct except r should go from 0 to .

You should start a new thread for a new problem.
The intersection is the circle in the plane.
So goes from to . Now we need to define the "floor plan", which is the circle .
If cylindrical coordinates work for you, your integral is
The extra is required for cylindrical coordinates.
