QRAwarrior Group Title

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?

    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...
