what do you come out with for an answer because my answer is way off

How did you set up the integral?

How do you know your answer is way off?

Letting us know what you have done so far would be far better than just telling you the answer. - April 3rd 2008, 10:55 AMwaite3

Unless I am missing something here, this integral can only be solved numerically....
