Chapter 8: Applications of Triple Integration
Section 8.1: Volume
The examples in Section 7.3, Section 7.4, and Section 7.6 illustrated how to compute volumes with iterated triple integrals in Cartesian, cylindrical, and spherical coordinates, respectively.
The examples in this section require the calculation of volumes of regions R described in such a way as to require a bit more visualization skill, the translation into appropriate mathematical notation of the words used to detail shapes and other geometric objects.
In Examples 8.1.(1 - 30), use an iterated triple integral to obtain the volume of the given region R.
