can anyone assist with evaluating the integral if sin (x/y) with respect to x & y, i have tried using integration by parts but cant seem to get an answer.

i know by using the online calculators the answer is -ycos(x/y)

would some be able to post some of the initial steps i get you have to use the substitution method but am having difficultiy getting the answer out

original expression integrate with respect to x

= sin(y/x)

step 2 using substitution = sin (t) dt

step 3 -cos (t) t ??? - Apr 24th 2010, 11:37 PMmaddas
Is y a constant? If so: let x = yt, so dx = y dt. Then .

evaluate the double integral sin(x/y)dA where R is the region bounded by the y-axis , y=pi and x=y^2
