Find the volume bounded by z = x^2 + y^2 and z = y. Answer: pi/32 Any tips would be much appreciated.

There is no area bounded by these. The first is a cylinder, the second is a plane cutting the cylinder. You need another plane to bound a finite region. Was there a condition that z be positive? That is, that the xyplane is also a boundary?

I wouldn't. Hopefully, Zollen will get back to us to tell us what the problem really says!

Yes. z must be positive.

Apparently I did not look closely enough at the original problem! is a paraboloid, not a cylinder, and together with z= y does define a finite region. Taking z= y, the intersection of the plane and the paraboloid satisfies or . Complete the square in y by adding 1/4 to both sides: . That projects to the circle in the xy plane with center at (0, 1/2) and radius 1/2. We can cover that by taking x from 1/2 to 1/2 and, for each x, taking y from to .
