# Thread: Derivative and Definite Integral question

1. ## Derivative and Definite Integral question

Derivative:
$
p(t) = t^-^3 - 3t\sqrt{t^3}
$

Is the square root of t^3 the same as t^1.5?

Integrals(Express the following as limits, don't evaluate):
As 0 goes to 4
$
\int {\( (2x+1)^1^/^3} dx =
$

As 4 goes to 7
$
\int {\(\sqrt{2t} dt =
$

square root t^3 is pretty much just t^3*.5 (when a power is raised to a power, you multiply the powers). So yes. If nobody has helped you by morning, I'll do what I can. Until then, nap time!

Use substitution rule. Let $u=2x+1$ then, the integral becomes,
$\frac{1}{2} \int^9_1 u^3 du$ the reason for the limits is because when $x=0$ then $u=1$ and when $x=4$ then $u=9$

Use subsitution $x=2t$ then using the rule properly you have,
$\frac{1}{2}\int^{14}_{8}\sqrt{x}dx$
