Re: Solve double integral

That has no simple anti-derivative do swap the order of integrals:

First, you need to be careful about the limits of integration. The best way to do that is to draw a "picture". The outer integral is from x= 0 to so draw vertical lines on an xy- coordinate systems at those values of x. The "inner" integral is from y= x to so draw the slant line y= x and the horizontal line . You should see that the region you are to integrate over is the upper half of the square with vertices at (0, 0), , , and . Overall, y goes from to and, for each y, x goes from x= 0 to .

Re: Solve double integral

I tried to swap the order of the integrals (like I posted in my update), so

But now the outer integral has a variable boundary (x) I can't get rid off.

Moreover, I still need to find the antiderivative of .

I need some more help, please!

Re: Solve double integral

Hi,

May be you did not figure out HallsofIvy's idea.

I think his idea is like that, you see that the domain of integration is the triangle whose vertices are the points .

So the domain can be alternatively determined as follows :

.

So

Now it is straightforward.

Re: Solve double integral

Please do not stop after reading just the first sentence!

My last line was:

"Overall, y goes from 0 to , and, for each y, x goes from x= 0 to y."

Yes of course, but I think he did not figure out your post because he asked for further explanations.

Re: Solve double integral

Thank you both for your help! I (think I) get it now.

My solution for the double integral is 1. Is this correct?

Re: Solve double integral

Is it not 2? I got 2. do not forget that you already have 2 in the integral.

Re: Solve double integral

I figured the 2 disappears while calculating the last antiderivative because the antiderivative of is and

**Update:** I forgot the last term, the answer is not but

and

note also the lower bound of the integral which is zero the answer will be [/QUOTE]

Re: Solve double integral

You are right! I forgot to substract the lower boundary! I get it now! Thank you so much for your help!

It was to Lotte1990 I was responding, saying essentially the same thing you did.
