Chapter 15 – Multiple Integrals

15.8 Triple Integrals in Cylindrical Coordinates

- Objectives:
- Use cylindrical coordinates to solve triple integrals

15.8 Triple Integrals in Cylindrical Coordinates

- In plane geometry, the polar coordinate system is used to give a convenient description of certain curves and regions.

15.8 Triple Integrals in Cylindrical Coordinates

- The figure enables us to recall the connection between polar and Cartesian coordinates.
- If the point P has Cartesian coordinates (x, y) and polar coordinates (r, θ), thenx = rcosθy = r sin θ r2 = x2 + y2 tan θ = y/x

15.8 Triple Integrals in Cylindrical Coordinates

- In three dimensions there is a coordinate system, called cylindrical coordinates, that:
- Is similar to polar coordinates.
- Gives a convenient description of commonly occurring surfaces and solids.

15.8 Triple Integrals in Cylindrical Coordinates

- In the cylindrical coordinate system, a point P in three-dimensional (3-D) space is represented by the ordered triple (r, θ, z), where:
- r and θ are polar coordinates of the projection of Ponto the xy–plane.
- z is the directed
distance from the

xy-plane to P.

15.8 Triple Integrals in Cylindrical Coordinates

- To convert from cylindrical to rectangular coordinates, we use the following (Equation 1):
x = rcosθ

y = r sin θ

z = z

- To convert from rectangular to cylindrical coordinates, we use the following (Equation 2):
r2 = x2 + y2

tan θ = y/x

z = z

15.8 Triple Integrals in Cylindrical Coordinates

- Cylindrical coordinates are useful in problems that involve symmetry about an axis, and the z-axis is chosen to coincide with this axis of symmetry.
- For instance, the axis of the circular cylinder with Cartesian equation x2 + y2 = c2is the z-axis.

15.8 Triple Integrals in Cylindrical Coordinates

- In cylindrical coordinates, this cylinder has the very simple equation r = c.
- This is the reason for the name “cylindrical” coordinates.

- Sketch the solid whose volume is given by the integral and evaluate the integral.

15.8 Triple Integrals in Cylindrical Coordinates

- Suppose that E is a type 1 region whose projection D on the xy-plane is conveniently described in polar coordinates.

15.8 Triple Integrals in Cylindrical Coordinates

- In particular, suppose that f is continuous and E = {(x, y, z) | (x, y) D, u1(x, y) ≤ z ≤ u2(x, y)}
where D is given in polar coordinates by: D = {(r, θ) | α ≤ θ ≤ β, h1(θ) ≤ r ≤ h2(θ)}

We know from Equation 6 in Section 15.6 that:

- However, we also know how to evaluate double integrals in polar coordinates.
- This is formula 4 for triple integration in cylindrical coordinates.

15.8 Triple Integrals in Cylindrical Coordinates

- It says that we convert a triple integral from rectangular to cylindrical coordinates by:
- Writing x = rcosθ, y = r sin θ.
- Leaving z as it is.
- Using the appropriate limits of integration for z, r, and θ.
- Replacing dV by r dzdr dθ.

15.8 Triple Integrals in Cylindrical Coordinates

- When studying the formation of mountain ranges, geologists estimate the amount of work to lift a mountain from sea level. Consider a mountain that is essentially in the shape of a right circular cone. Suppose the weight density of the material in the vicinity of a point P is g(P) and the height is h(P).
- Find a definite integral that represents the total work done in forming the mountain.

- Assume Mt. Fuji in Japan is the shape of a right circular cone with radius 62,000 ft, height 12,400 ft, and density a constant 200 lb/ft3. How much work was done in forming Mt. Fuji if the land was initially at sea level?
