Yes, for each z, the cross section is the circle $\displaystyle x^2+ y^2= z$ which has center at (0, 0, z) and radius $\displaystyle \sqrt{z}$. Using cylindrical coordinates, the most obvious way to do it is to take $\displaystyle \theta$ running from 0 to $\displaystyle 2\pi$, z from 0 to 4, and, for each z, r from 0 to $\displaystyle \sqrt{z}$. If you really want to integrate with respect to z first and then r, take r from 0 to 2, and, for each r, z from r to 4. Last edited by skipjack; August 17th, 2017 at 05:39 AM.

But why from r to 4 and not from 0 to r^2?

The integral should be from $\displaystyle r^2$ to 4, not r to 4. But 0 to $\displaystyle r^2$ would be below, so outside the cone.
