Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If you plot your surfaces, you'll find that \[z=\sqrt{2x^2y^2}\]will sit on top of \[z=x^2+y^2\] and you're basically calculating the volume between them. If you were to calculate the volume of the first and then the volume of the second, and subtract the second, the remainder would be the volume in between (you should try to plot something to see this happening). Now, we need to work out the domain over which we integrate. The two surfaces intersect on the curve \[x^2+y^2=1\] So we have for the net volume,\[V=\int\limits_{D}^{}\int\limits_{}^{}z_2z_1dA=V=\int\limits_{D}^{}\int\limits_{}^{}\sqrt{2x^2y^2}(x^2+y^2)dA\]where our domain is \[D=\left\{ (x,y)x^2+y^2=1 \right\}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0We can make life less complicated by switching to polar coordinates, noting the transformation,\[x=r \cos \theta , y= r \sin \theta , dA= r dr d \theta\]and where our domain is (in these coordinates),\[D_{r,\theta}=\left\{ (r,\theta)0 \le r \le 1, 0 \le \theta \le 2\pi \right\}\]The integral then becomes,\[V=\int\limits_{0}^{1}\int\limits_{0}^{2\pi}(\sqrt{2r^2}r^2)r dr d \theta=\int\limits_{0}^{1}\int\limits_{0}^{2\pi}r \sqrt{2r^2}r^3 dr d \theta\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The integral is independent of theta, so you can integrate that out immediately to be left with,\[V=2\pi \int\limits_{0}^{1}r \sqrt{2r^2}r^3 d r\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The integral on the lefthand side can be evaluated using the substitution,\[u=2r^2 \rightarrow du=2r dr \rightarrow rdr = \frac{du}{2}\]and so the LHS integral is,\[V_L=2\pi \int\limits_{u_1}^{u_2}\frac{du}{2}u^{1/2}= 2 \pi \frac{1}{2}\frac{u^{3/2}}{\frac{3}{2}}_{u_1}^{u_2}=\frac{2\pi}{3}u^{3/2}_{u_1}^{u_2}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So\[V=V_L+V_R=\frac{2\pi}{3}(2\sqrt{2}1)\frac{\pi}{2}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If I've stuffed up anywhere, it's a calculation error. The method is sound. Just check what surface is on top of the other, their curve of intersection will define the boundary of the domain of integration. The domain is given on the xy plane as the projection of the object onto the surface (imagine holding a light above the surface and taking the shadow on the floor as being the domain). If you need help, let me know. Fan me if you haven't; this took ages to write out ;p

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0zidane, just check everything before you take it on board. I rushed through it. E.g. check the orientation of the surfaces, their intersection, projection of domain, etc.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0your answer is correct.but how come u get x^2 + y^2 =1?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ah, the projection of the curve where z_1 and z_2 intersect is the boundary of the domain. You can imagine the paraboloid opening upward from the origin and the other curve opening downward from a starting point above. They're both expanding as they open and they will intersect at some height, z. Since they're sharing the same height, we can find all (x,y) that both surfaces share. This set of (x,y) forms the boundary of the domain. So, for z_1=z_2, you'd have \[x^2+y^2=\sqrt{2x^2y^2}\] which, when solved, gives the unit circle.
