In[13]:= Integrate[Sqrt[t*(1 - z)*(t - z)], {t, 0, z},
Assumptions -> z > 0]
Out[13]= 1/8 \[Pi] Sqrt[-1 + z] z^2
It helped me a great deal to plot both the integral and the answers (especially the integral) vs. t, with various values of z. Then I recognized the integrand can be cast into a slightly different form:
Integrate[Sqrt[-1*((t - z/2)^2 - z^2/4)], {t, 0, z},
Assumptions -> z > 0 && 0 <= t <= z]
The integral gives
(\[Pi] z^2)/8
which is simply the area of half a circle with radius z/2; the circles are obvious if you plot the integrand. They're later scaled by the Sqrt[z-1] factor.
