Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[z(x,y)=\sqrt{a^2x^2}\]\[z_x=\frac{x}{\sqrt{a^2x^2}}\]\[z_y=0\]\[dS=\sqrt{1+(z_x)^2+(z_y)^2}\,dA=\frac{a}{\sqrt{a^2x^2}}dA\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so I get lost from here. my solution manual says that the area is\[A=2\iint_D\frac{a}{\sqrt{a^2x^2}}dA\]Where D is the disk in which the vertical cylinder meets the xyplane

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh ok because I let \(z(x,y)=\sqrt{a^2x^2}\) and it's really \(z(x,y)=\pm\sqrt{a^2x^2}\) so by symmetry the area will be twice that?
