    Triple integral

    Please help with the following integral calculation:
    \int\!\!\!\!\int\!\!\!\!\int_V e^{{(x^2+y^2+z^2)}^{\frac{3}{2}}}dxdydz where V=\{(x,y,z)|x^2+y^2+z^2\leq1\}
    I tried switching to spherical coordinates:
    x=r\cos\varphi\sin\theta
    y=r\sin\varphi\sin\theta
    z=r\cos\theta
    dV=r^2 \sin \theta dr d \theta d\varphi
    with 0\leq r\leq1 but I'm not sure about the range of \varphi and \theta

    0\leq\varphi\leq2\pi , 0\leq\theta\leq \pi ,0\leq\rho\leq1 now it is correct


    Edited:- Spec show me mistake that I did

    Actually, with those variables the limits are 0\leq \varphi \leq 2\pi,\ 0\leq \theta \leq \pi

    It can be a bit confusing since a lot of sources use different variables for the angles.

    Usually I use \phi instead of \theta so I didn't look to what he write thanks to Spec
