Let's start by drawing the region.\[\large 0 \le y \le \sqrt{9x^2}\]Here are the boundaries on y, it appears to be the upper half of a circle, with radius 3.dw:1363217680487:dw

How bout the boundaries on x?\[\large 0 \le x \le 3\]This is telling us that our region is only the first quadrant.

dw:1363217804038:dwThis is how our boundaries would change in polar.

Hey I appreciate your help. Keep posting guidelines, I am currently finishing up at work but when I get home I will be looking at this again and begin solving.

If you do decide to post a lot, leave the answer and final evaluations to me ;)

Changing to polar, we let \(\large x=r\cos\theta\) and \(\large y=r\sin\theta\) and simplify our integral down. An important thing to remember, is that when we change the `differentials`, a factor of \(\large r\) will pop out as well.\[\large dx\;dy \qquad \rightarrow \qquad r\;dr\;d\theta\]

Haha XD I prolly won't post the final answer, just some steps :D They frown on that stuff here.. If I don't let you do some of the work, heh

So I think this is how our integral would change. \[\large \int\limits_{\theta=0}^{\pi/2}\quad \int\limits_{r=0}^{3} \left((r \cos \theta)^2+(r \sin \theta)^2 \right)^{3/2}\left(r \;dr\;d \theta\right)\]

Lemme know if you have trouble solving that. Don't forget your important trig identity, \(\large \cos^2x+\sin^2x=1\)
