stumped by setting integral limits

Hi, I have a function y=(x^3/2H^3+1). I am calculating flux through an area defined by this function. So I have
flux = limits (0, 2H) integral (function, dx).
This is what I cannot understand  if for the same problem, I define the flux boundary as (H, H), the flux will become
flux = limits (H, H) integral (function, dx)
In principle, both scenarios should result in the same result but they don't. I cannot understand what I am doing wrong.
I will appreciate any insights.
Thanks, John.
