We can use triple integrals and spherical coordinates to solve for the volume of a solid sphere. To convert from rectangular coordinates to spherical coordinates, we use a set of spherical conversion formulas.

Read MoreSimilarly to the way we used midpoints to approximate single integrals by taking the midpoint at the top of each approximating rectangle, and to the way we used midpoints to approximate double integrals by taking the midpoint at the top of each approximating prism, we can use midpoints to approximate a triple integral by taking the midpoint of each sub-cube.

Read MoreLike cartesian (or rectangular) coordinates and polar coordinates, cylindrical coordinates are just another way to describe points in three-dimensional space. Cylindrical coordinates are exactly the same as polar coordinates, just in three-dimensional space instead of two-dimensional space.

Read MoreThere are six ways to express an iterated triple integral. While the function inside the integral always stays the same, the order of integration will change, and the limits of integration will change to match the order.
