Idea: Use the formula l w h 3 for finding the volume. But at first you have to Bash the problem to find the width and length and then after getting their values you have to plug it into the formula to find the volume.

Explanation:
The base is a regular polygon with n + 2 sides. If a is its apothem, then the altitude of every lateral face is ka. From Pythagoras' theorem we then get h 2 = k 2 a 2 a 2 and from this we can find a. Finally, you can find the area of the base as: A = ( n + 2 ) a 2 tan π n + 2 .

Finding the volume of a region below a plane and above a paraboloid (Triple integrals)
I have to find the volume below the plane z = 3 2 y and above the paraboloid z = x 2 + y 2 .
Integrating by z first, it looks like the "arrow" I draw parallel to z-axis enters the region at z = x 2 + y 2 and exits the region at z = 3 2 y. So x 2 + y 2 3 2 y 1 d z.
How I am supposed to find the other two integrals?

Problem with finding the volume with cylindrical coordinates.
I have the following function:
Z = x 2 + y 2 ,   Z = x + y
that i want to solve (to find the volume) with cylindrical coordinates. I am evaluating the integral to get:
V = d V = R x 2 + y 2 x + y d z d A = R x + y ( x 2 + y 2 ) d A .
and from here i am trying to get the bounds for r by intersecting the two functions and i get that r = 0   o r   r = 1 therefore i tought that 0 r 1 but it dosen't seems right. But i get the following result:
2 π 0 1 ( r r 2 ) r d r d θ = 2 π ( r 3 3 r 4 4 ) | 0 1 = π 6
and this is not the corrent answer, i should get π 8 .. I know this is too specific to a given problem question i apologize for that but can someone tells me where i made a mistake

Finding the Volume of a solid - Application of Integrals - Exercise that is not clear to understand
I've been working on a few exercises and one of them seems not clear, I'm not sure what the author meant in it. Here's the exercise:
Find the volume of the solid whose base is the area between the curve y = x 3 and the y axis, from x = 0 to y = 1, considering that his cross sections, taken perpendicular to the y axis, are squares.

Triple integrals-finding the volume of cylinder.
Find the volume of cylinder with base as the disk of unit radius in the xy plane centered at (1, 1, 0) and the top being the surface z = ( ( x 1 ) 2 + ( y 1 ) 2 ) 3 / 2 ..
I just knew that this problem uses triple integral concept but dont know how to start. I just need someone to suggest an idea to start. I will proceed then.

Finding volume of solid
Suppose that a solid is formed in such a way that each cross section perpendicular to the x-axis, for 0 x 1, is a disk, a diameter of which goes from the x-axis out to the curve y = x .
Find the volume of the solid.
For this I use the disk formula. So π 0 1 ( x ) 2 d x . .
When I do this, I get π 5 . The answer is π 8 . What am I doing wrong?

Finding Volume of Rugby Ball
I am asked to find the volume of rugby ball whose surface is given by the ellipsoid:
x 2 4 + y 2 4 + z 2 9 = 1
I am having trouble figuring out which coordinate system I should use. Is it possible to solve the triple integral of the volume by just using cartesian co-ordinates, without making conversions to the spherical or cylindrical coordinate system?

Find the volume of the regions enclosed by z = x 2 + y 2 2 and z = 30 x 2 y 2
I set up a triple integral with the bounds of the inmost as x 2 + y 2 2 to 30 x 2 y 2 . The two outer integrals both had the bounds from -4 to 4. When I solved it I got 1024 as the volume, but this isn't correct. Can someone please show me the steps to finding the bounds, and the correct answer?
