**Problem:**
During a surge in the demand for electricity, the rate,

*r*, at which energy is used can be approximated by the following function where

*t* is the time in hours and

*b* is a positive constant.

a.) (a) Find the total energy,

*E*, used in the first

*T* hours. Give your answer as a function of

*b*.

**My Work:**

So I know that I want the integral of r(t) from 0 to T. I tried to find the integral and got:

Is this right?

And also, I have NO IDEA what it means when the question says that it wants the answer **in terms of b. **"b" is a constant! How do you do that?! Is that like E(b), and if so, what would that look like?
