Evaluate the definite integral from u = 0 to u = -4 of: \sqrt{1 + u^2} dx As you may have noticed, I have already done U-sub.

    But ultimately, you have to put a -4 into a trigonometric function's argument. How will that work?

    the problem is subbing in the limits???

    convert the limits when using the trig sub

    No, you don't need to convert back

  19. lgbasallote

    otherwise you'll have to convert the limits in terms of theta

    Ok let me see what happens: - tan(θ) = u/1 - sec(θ) = \sqrt{1 + u^2} Then, sec^2(θ)dθ = du

    sec^3 theta = (sec^2 theta)sec theta (1+ tan^2 theta) sec theta \[\int \sec \theta + \tan^2 \theta \sec \theta\] lol got me stuck now

    @QRAwarrior , i just remember this \[\int\limits_{}^{}\sqrt{x^2+a^2} = \frac{x}{2}\sqrt{x^2+a^2}+\frac{a^2}{2}\log{|x+\sqrt{x^2+a^2}|}+C\]

    Ok, skrew that question and instead would you mind looking at this: You have the curves x = (y-7)^2, and x = 4 that enclose a region. You must rotate this region about y = 5. |dw:1337525316103:dw| I need to use the shell method here, but it looks like as if I will get two cylinders here. Thanks for the help on the opening post question...

    I think that's formula for standard integral ... what do we call it ... i have bunch of them in my books ... but they are derived in the same way!!

    slight Correction: \[\int\limits\limits_{}^{}\sqrt{x^2+a^2} \space \space dx = \frac{x}{2}\sqrt{x^2+a^2}+\frac{a^2}{2}\log{|x+\sqrt{x^2+a^2}|}+C\]
