Tricky Spherical coordinates...

Consider the region S inside the cylinder x^2+y^2 = 1, outside the sphere x^2+y^2+z^2 = 1, and with z between 0 and 1. A view from above and a cross section (looking along the positive x axis) are shown below.

Set up one or more triple integrals to integrate a function f(x; y; z) over S using spherical coordinates, but DO NOT EVALUATE.

Answer:
$\displaystyle
\int_{0}^{2 \pi} \int_{0}^{\pi / 4} \int_{1}^{sec \phi } \rho^2 sin \phi d \rho d \phi d \theta + \int_{0}^{2 \pi} \int_{\pi / 4}^{\pi / 2} \int_{1}^{csc \phi } \rho^2 sin \phi d \rho d \phi d \theta
$

I guess I don't understand why the first time inner upper limit is $\displaystyle sec \phi $ while the second term inner upper limit is $\displaystyle csc \phi $

Both terms upper limits should have been $\displaystyle sec \phi $.

I don't understand why the second term upper limit is $\displaystyle csc \phi $
