First let's get that radicand simplified a bit:

Let

The first integral may be done using a simple substitution. I'll let you deal with that. For the second integral:

Take a moment and look at the graph I've posted below. You can easily see that this integrand does not exist beyond x = 1. So

<-- We need to do this, else the substitution below is illegal.

Now Let

I'll let you do this one also and then collect all the pieces.

Hello, kittycat!

A variation on Dan's solution . . .

For the first integral, use:

For the second integral, we have:

Can you finish it?

what about for this integral,

the integral of t^2 *sqrt(1+9t^2) dt. How should I solve it? Thank you very much. - Nov 3rd 2007, 09:30 AMtopsquark

Instead of using the sine function, use the tangent function. (http://www.mathhelpforum.com/math-he...632bea41-1.gif.)

Hi Dan,

Could you please show me how to let the tangent function in this question? Sorry to ask you because I forgot the trig substitution. Thank you very much. - Nov 3rd 2007, 09:56 AMtopsquark

Hi,

I might be wrong in the process of calculation. :(But don't know why can't get the answer (given by the textbook) from your approach.

The answer given by the textbook is -11/108 *sqrt(10) -1/36*ln(sqrt(10)-3) -4/27

help me again please:D - Nov 4th 2007, 02:00 AMtopsquark

he same way that Soroban did, though in this case there are no restrictions due to the limits. So

========================

*Referring to : the integral from 0 to 1 of t^2 *sqrt(1+9t^2) dt.*

I got to the same answer as you posted. But how should i evaluate it if it is =>*the integral from 0 to 1 of t^2 *sqrt(1+9t^2) dt.*

Could you please guide me to the final answer of this integration?

Thank you very much. (Handshake)
