Integrate the function
Hi, I am kinda having trouble trying to find the limits for the triple integral.
Integrate the function https://instruct.math.lsa.umich.edu/...b7704d4671.png over the solid given by the figure below, if P=(-4,-4,2), Q=(-3,-3,2), R=(3,3,2), and S=(4,4,2).
(You should find the actual value when you evaluate the integral!)
Are we to assume the bottom is in the xy-plane? Use cylindrical coordinates, of course.
goes from to (arctan(4/4)= arctan(1) to arctan(-4/4)), r from to , and z from 0 to 2.
Thanks a lot for the reply(Clapping)...
I tried to integrate the function and getting 2960/3 which is not the right answer...
okay.. first I converted to cylindrical coordinate!!!
now integrated the following function:
=> 2960/3 (Doh)(Doh)(Doh)
the answer is -2960/3 ... so I guess its not a volume...(Bow)
what would make you think it was a volume?
Well, double and triple integral could be volume if( f(x)>=0), so I assumed that they wanted me to find the volume... but I was wrong... (Crying)
