Integral CalculusDate: 09/18/97 at 10:40:35 From: Jane Subject: Integral calculus How do you integrate the following function: square root of (1 - x squared) from 0-1? Date: 09/18/97 at 11:06:53 From: Doctor Rob Subject: Re: Integral calculus Use the substitution x = sin(u). -Doctor Rob, The Math Forum Check out our web site! http://mathforum.org/dr.math/ Date: 09/18/97 at 13:14:48 From: Doctor Ceeks Subject: Re: integral calculus Hi, Another way to do the integral you ask for is to realize that: 1. The integral asks for the area of a region between a curve and the x-axis 2. The particular region in this problem is one quarter of a circle of radius 1. (so the answer is pi/4) -Doctor Ceeks, The Math Forum Check out our web site! http://mathforum.org/dr.math/ |
