good, 1 in denominator

wrong, used derivative rule instead of integration rule.
I(x^2,dx) = x^3/3 = (1/3) x^3 . can check rule by deriving area of triangle.
it really should be (1/3) x^3, see derivation of triangle area.
it is more right than 2x^3 for sure.

using (1/3)x^3,
(1/3)r_sphere^3 - (1/3)(-r_sphere)^3 = 2/3 r_sphere^3
:D

r^2 dx => r^2 x .
the rule and denominator comes from the variable of integration, not
the coefficient.
the rule is to divide, not multiply as in differentiation.
r^2 x is correct.

this is (1/3)x^3 as described above :) see derivation of triangle area
to support rule

r^2 x - (1/3)x^3 | x=-r..+r (note this is already done once above)

+r: r^2 r - (1/3)r^3 = r^3 - (1/3) r^3 = (2/3) r^3
-r: r^2 (-r) - (1/3)(-r)^3 = -r^3 + (1/3)r^3 = -(2/3) r^3
difference = 4/3 r^3
then finish other avenue where the parts were subtracted separate and
then summed
