    line intergral of scalar field ( piecewise curve)

    for the line segment c2 , why did the author want to differentiate dx with respect to dy ? and he gt dx = 0 ? I'm curious why did he didnt do so for C3 , where dy= 0 ..Why didnt he also differentiate dy with dx ? dy/dx = 0 ?

    Trig Identity Intergral- have I got this right?

    So question is to evaluate this intergral: 8x. cos(4x^2 +3) dx Im getting 4x^2 +C Is that right? two trig identities turn the cos(x) into 1? Thanks for any and all help! Rhys

    Differentiating intergral of composite function

    Hi I'm looking for help with a simple question in calculus. The question is: how do you differentiate the integral of a composite function? Specifically, if what is ? The closest thing to an answer I could find was Leibniz's rule, which suggested the answer should be , but the answer...

    intergral of e^x / (1-2e^x)^3 dx help

    e^x / (1-2e^x)^3 dx i replaced (1-2e^x) with a random letter in my case i used "p" i ended up with the answer: 1 / 4(1-2e^x)² + C however it doesnt look right to me, can anyone confirm if i am right or wrong?

    Definite intergral

    Hi, I am solving a problem which involves calculating the surface are of a solid revolution about the x – axis. I have found that the surface area can be given by: A = 2\Pi \int_{-70}^{110}r+\frac{rd}{\sqrt{r^{2}-x^{2}}}\: dx I have done this using the trapezium rule as I know the values of r...

    f,g are continues funtion on [a,b] prove or desprove by counterexample that: if \int_{a}^{x}f(t)dt=\int_{a}^{x}g(t)dt then f=g on [a,b] ? how i tried: i this its correct i transfered to the other side \int_{a}^{x}f(t)dt-\int_{a}^{x}g(t)dt=0 \int_{a}^{x}f(t)-g(t)dt=0 what now? i cant do...

    More integral help!

    So I've been trying to figure out the best way to approach this problem, but so far no luck. (int(x*ln(x))/sqrt(x^2-1) I'm thinking this has something to do with inverse sin, but I am not sure what to substitute... Help please? (Clapping)
