Integrate x^{2}+y^{2}+z^{2} over the cylinder x^{2}+y^{2}\leq 2,2\leq z\leq 3.


Integrate {eq}x^{2}+y^{2}+z^{2} {/eq} over the cylinder {eq}x^{2}+y^{2}\leq 2,2\leq z\leq 3 {/eq}.

Cylindrical Coordinates:

We use cylindrical coordinates for integration.

In cylindrical coordinates {eq}x^2+y^2=r^2. {/eq}

The projection of the region of integration on the plane should be treated as a region in polar coordinates.

In cylindrical coordinates, the volume element is {eq}dz\, r\, dr\, d\theta. {/eq}
