The formula for the surface area seems to be obvious using polar coordinates: $\displaystyle S=∫_0^π▒∫_0^(1cosθ)▒2/√(4ρ^2 ) ρdρdθ$ but then I get stuck on solving the integral: $\displaystyle 4∫_0^π▒√(4〖(1cosθ)〗^2 ) dθ$ I tried various substitution methods but still couldn't find the right solution. Any hint/help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
