Find the volume of a sphere of radius R by using spherical coordinates to integrate 1 over the
sphere of radius R centered at the origin.
6. The moment ZofZ Zinertia of a body R with mass density δ( x, y, z) rotating about an axis is defined
by the integral
R
|r( x, y, z)|2 δ( x, y, z)dV, where r( x, y, z) is the vector from the axis of rotation
to the point ( x, y, z). Calculate the moment of inertia of a sphere of uniform mass density and
