Section 12.7: Spherical coordinates (concluded) Recall the group work problem “Find the volume of the part of the solid sphere x 2 + y 2 + z 2 =4 lying above the plane z =1.” In Cartesian coordinates, the integral we have to evaluate is –sqrt(3) sqrt(3) –sqrt(3– xx ) sqrt(3– xx ) 1 sqrt(4– xx yy ) dz dy dx . (This is the one that the book got wrong; see the notes for last Thursday.) If we perform the inner integral, we get –sqrt(3) sqrt(3) –sqrt(3– xx ) sqrt(3– xx ) (sqrt(4– x 2 y 2 ) –1) dy dx , but then we’re stuck (the antiderivative of sqrt(4– x 2 y 2 ) –1 is quite nasty). In cylindrical coordinates, we get the integral … 0 sqrt(3) 0 2 π 1 sqrt(4– rr ) r dz d θ dr = 0 sqrt(3) 0 2 π r (sqrt(4– r 2 ) – 1) d θ dr = 2 π 0 sqrt(3) r (sqrt(4– r 2 ) – 1) dr = 2 π [(–1/3)(4– r 2 ) 3/2 r 2 /2]| 0 sqrt(3) = 5 π /3. (I didn’t have time to do it in spherical coordinates, but presumably this is a doable approach too.) Section 12.8: Change of variables in multiple integrals Main ideas?

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
