Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Evaluate \[\int\limits_{0}^{4}\int\limits_{\sqrt{x}}^{2}\sin(y^3)dydx\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sin theta = x (You can use another variable since x is already in your problem, but I didn't know that.) Integrate x that is your new problem integrate x. Afterwards go back to your triangle to convert integrated x to your original variables.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Too confusing I just need to deal with sin(y^3) but none of the trig identities that I know lets me deal with it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It takes manual work. Creating a trig identity. You are right there is no regular trig identity for it. I created by hand.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Math requires patience. May be just copy the notes I wrote and take it to your instructor, ask him if it is sound and explain it to you.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0question: when you take x=sin(theta) what do you do about dx = cos(theta) just curious

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No I am not using u and du. I am just taking y^3 to be theta and creating a right triangle. With theta and my triangle and can give an x or any variable an arbitrary side of the triangle say opp, therefore my hyp is one and my adj is sq rt (1x^2). My problem is now integrate sin theta; from my triangle I have a value for sin theta, which conveniently is x. I only have to integrate x. Then after go back to my triangle and pick up my sin and y values.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok that makes sense, however in the original integral there is a dy that must be replaced with a dx at some point to integrate this new function

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That dy would be replaced by dx. Remember we are getting a value and then we are going back to our triangle and returning to original variables.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you can the order of integration , I just did double integrals only 23wks ago

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0In this case, you're better of applying Fubini's theorem: change the order of integration. You know (from the limits) \[\sqrt{x} \le y \le 2\ (and) 0 \le x \le 4\] So \[0 \le x \le y ^{2} (and) 0 \le y \le 2\]So the integral is equivalent to \[\int\limits_{0}^{2}\int\limits_{0}^{y^{2}}\sin(y^{3})dxdy\] which can then be solved as normal.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ahh now just use u substitution when integrating over y good job ac, didn't see that

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yeah, that's easy fix, but he posed this as a standalone single integration problem and only introduced the double integral later. As dumbcow knows people like a guy named Oneprince always challenge us with interesting integration problems.
