    simple Green's Theorem problem. please help!

    1. Find the mass of the wire.

    Density at (x,y) is x; the wire occupies the portion of the parabola
    y = (x^2)/2 from (0,0) to (1, 1/2)


    2. A wire occupies the spiral r = e^@ corresponding to @ in [0,2pi]. the density of the wire at point (r,@) is r. Find the mass of the wire.

    @ is theta btw; i don't know how to type out the symbol

    thanks

     x= t
     y= t^2
     rho = t
     |f'(t)| = \sqrt{1 + 4t^2}
     m = \int rho \cdot |f'(t)| dt
    This integral must be simple enough for you
    As for number 2
     x =t
     r = e^t
     rho = r = e^t
     |f'(t)| = \sqrt{1+e^{2t}}
     m = \int rho \cdot |f'(t)| dt
