Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\int\limits_{?}^{?} (xy+xy)dy + (xy+x+y)dx \] Circle formula: \[x ^{2} + y ^{2}  ax = 0\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0just integrate: integral of (xy+xy)dy = 1/2*x*y^2 + xy  1/2y^2 integral of (xy+x+y)dx = 1/2*x^2*y + 1/2x^2 + yx combining: 1/2*(x*y^2  y^2+x^2*y + x^2) + 2*yx = 1/2*(y^2+x^2) +2*x*y+1/2*(x^2*y+y^2*x)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Are you sure? I think you need to use polar coordinates.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You can always applly polar coordinates later on as well.... It might make it a little more cumbersome, but it will give the same value. But you can try, indeed.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok, I'll try it and see how it goes.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well, I did same as you (nothing new) but I'm confused as to what limits to use. If converting to polar coordinates at start before integration I have one limit for angle theta 0  2pi and other for r 0  a*cos(theta). With the result you got I don't know where to us these limits.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Here's my try to solve it using polar coordinates.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I switched from ax as limit to a+cos(theta) during integration. And also I used 2pi instead of (pi/2) to (pi/2)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That's a*cos(theta)...Typo.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I should've mentioned it. I'm using Green's theorem.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Ok, leave the angle bounds as pi/2 to pi/2. r varies from 0 to acos(theta). I got\[\oint_c(xy+xy)dy+(xy+x+y)dx=\frac{a^3\pi}{8}\]seemed rather straightforward, not sure about what the problem is. Is this not the answer?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2If you wanted to change the bounds of theta to 02pi then you would at least have to make r vary from 0a/2, but that still won't work as far as I can see. You would need to change more things in order to do that; seems extraneous.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2btw you were doing that last integral on your paper strangely. you could have integrated cos^3x*sinx right away, then tackled cos^4x with a reduction formula.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\int_0^{2\pi} \int_0^{ \frac{a}{2} cos(\theta)} a/2(sin(\theta))(cos(\theta)) r dr d\theta\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2^^^ that could work too, but why do you have a/2 in the integrand? shouldn't it be r first? plus the circle you are integrating on imran is centered at (0,0), so won't that change things? I did\[\oint_c(xy+xy)dy+(xy+x+y)dx=\int_{\frac{\pi}{2}}^{\frac{\pi}{2}}\int_{0}^{a\cos\theta}r^2(\sin\theta\cos\theta)drd\theta\]and got my answer above\[\frac{a^3\pi}{8}\]is there something wrong with that?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Sorry for not answering for so long but I was away from keyboard. I too tried to do the problem using the r limit from 0 to a*cos(theta) and I got the same answer as TuringTest so I guess it's correct. Medal given. Thank you all for your input!
