Surface integral and limit values

by engineerstudent   Last Updated September 11, 2019 13:20 PM

$x=ar \cos(\theta), y = br\sin(\theta)$ a and b are suitably selected constants. How do I calculate surface integral for this one:


when $D = $ {$ (x,y)\in \mathbf R^2$| $x \ge 0, y\ge0, 9x^2+4y^2\le36$}

I have hard time to understand which are the limit values of the integral

The integral is over a quarter ellipse in the first quadrant.

It would be easier to carry out the double integral with the variable changes


Then, the ellipse becomes a unit circle


and the integral simplifies to


which can be integrated with the polar coordinates,

$$I=6\int_0^{\pi/2}\int_0^1 \ln(1+r^2)rdrd\theta$$
