Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[ dA=2\pi\,r(z)\,dz\\ r = z\\ A=2\pi\int_0^4zdz=2\pi\left[{z^2\over 2}\right]_0^4=16\pi \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That's not the answer, it should be 16pi*sqrt(2).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1my bad.. \[ A=\iint_z\sqrt{\left({\partial z\over \partial x}\right)^2+\left({\partial z\over \partial y}\right)^2+1}dx\,dy \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1to get the limits, \[z=4\\x^2+y^2=(2)^2\] circle of radius 2 so, \(0\le x,y\le2\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Method 2: Polar coordinates Use \(x=r\cos\theta\\y=r\sin\theta\) \[z(r,\theta)=r^2\\0\le r\le2,\qquad 0\le\theta\le2\pi\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1correction: \[A=\iint_R\sqrt{\ldots}(\pi\,dx\,dy)\] so, \[A=\int_{x=4}^4\int_{y=0}^2\sqrt{{x^2\over x^2+y^2}+{y^2\over x^2+y^2}+1}dx\,dy\\ A=\sqrt{2}\int_{x=4}^4\left(\int_{y=\sqrt{16x^2}}^\sqrt{16x^2}dy\right)dx\\ A=\sqrt{2}\int_{4}^42\sqrt{16x^2}dx\\ \text{use }\;x=4\sin\theta\implies\theta=\sin^{1}(x/4)\implies dx=4\cos\theta d\theta\\ \text{when}\;x=4,\quad\theta={\pi\over2}\\ \text{when}\;x=4,\quad\theta={\pi\over2}\\ A=2\sqrt{2}\int_{\pi\over2}^{\pi\over2}2\cos\theta(4\cos\theta d\theta)\\ A=8\sqrt{2}\int_{\pi\over2}^{\pi\over2}(1\cos2\theta)d\theta A=8\sqrt{2}\left[\theta{\sin2\theta\over2}\right]_{\pi\over2}^{\pi\over2}\\ A=8\sqrt{2}\left[{\pi\over2}+{\pi\over2}\right]\\ \boxed{A=8\pi\sqrt{2}} \] @satellite73 could you check plz
