Chapter 6: Applications of Double Integration
Section 6.2: Volume
If F=5−3 x2−2 y2 and R is the interior of the triangle whose vertices are 0,0,1,0,0,1, calculate the volume of the region bounded above by the surface z=Fx,y and below by the plane z=0.
The region whose volume is to be computed is shown in Figure 6.2.5(a). The simplest iteration of the double integral that gives the area of R takes the integrand as F and uses the order dy dx:
∫01∫01−xF dy dx = 2512
If the order of integration is taken as dx dy, then the iterated integral would be
∫01∫01−yF dx dy = 2512

Maple Solution - Coded
Install the Student MultivariateCalculus package.
Define the integrand F.
F≔5−3 x2−2 y2:
Obtain the equation of the hypotenuse in region R
Apply the Line and GetRepresentation commands.
Top-level, using the Int and int commands
Use the MultiInt command from the Student MultivariateCalculus package
MultiIntF,y=0..1−x,x=0..1 = 12⁢F
Use the MultiInt command with a pre-defined domain option
MultiIntF,x,y=Region0..1,0.. 1−x = 12⁢F
MultiIntF,y,x=Region0..1,0..1−y = 12⁢F
