Hi, I've been working on this problem:

Evaluate the triple integral of xz with the vertices (0,0,0), (0,1,0), (0,1,1), and (1,1,0).

I drew out the tetrahedron, but I can't set up the bounds. Usually, they give you an equation as a bound. Here, I'm just completely lost.

  1. Did the problem say the solid was a tetrahedron with those corners? I will have to assume that to be the case.
    Now look at that thing.
    It has a base in the xy plane. Labeling those points as a, b, c and d then a b and d have z = 0
    SO
    every layer up in z is a triangle parallel to the base in the x,y plane.
    You can find the x and y of the corners of that triangle at every z because each edge is a straight line.
    For example when z = 0
    x goes from 0 to 1 while y goes from 0 to 1 or y = x
    then x goes from 0 to 1 while y goes from 1 to 1 or y = 1
    so the integral at that z would be from x = 0 to x = 1
    and from y = x to y = 1
    of course that contribution would be zero because z = 0 at this level
    however you can define the limits at every height z as the sides of the triangle at that height.
    so what you want is x z times the area of that triangle at each z

  2. Oh, not sure about that last line, have to do the integral out at every height because x is in the integrand.
