Homework Help: calculus

Posted by Johnnie on Monday, March 10, 2014 at 10:22pm.

Find the surface area of the part of the sphere x^2+y^2+z^2=a^2 inside the circular cylinder x^2+y^2=ay (r=a*sin(θ) in polar coordinates), with a>0.

First time posting on this website, sorry for the lack of details on my attempts but I am really not sure where to start on this problem.

A formula that is useful is A(G)=∫∫√((f_x)^2+(f_y)^2+1)dA

*f_x is the partial derivative with respect to x, f_y is the partial derivative with respect to y

I know that I need to find an equation which should be x^2+y^2+z^2=a^2, and I need to find the limits which is where I am really struggling.

Also according to my professor, I shouldn't have to use any polar coordinate conversions in order to complete this problem, which was my initial approach.
