    Triple Integral

    Evaluate \int\int_E\int \sqrt{x^2+y^2+z^2}\;dV where E is the solid bounded below by the conic surface 3z^2=x^2+y^2,z\ge 0 and bounded above by the spherical surface x^2+y^2+z^2=5.

    Thanks

    The upper surface is z = \sqrt{5-x^2-y^2} and lower surface is z = \frac{1}{\sqrt{3}}\sqrt{x^2+y^2}. You need to know the region over which you are integrating. Note if x^2+y^2+z^2 = 5 \implies 3x^2+3y^2+3z^2 = 15 so 4x^2+4y^2 = 15\implies x^2+y^2 = \frac{15}{4}.

    Thus, we get, \iint_A \int_{(1/3)\sqrt{x^2+y^2}}^{\sqrt{5-x^2-y^2}} f(x,y,z) dz dA where A is the disk x^2+y^2 \leq \frac{15}{4}.

    Now use Polar change of variable.
