\[x^{2} + y^{2} = 1\] \[y = \sqrt{1x^{2}}\] this is top half of circle...integrate from 1 to 1 \[Area = 2\int\limits_{1}^{1}\sqrt{1x^{2}} dx = \pi\]

Yes, but how do i integrate \[\sqrt{1x^2}\]

dumbcow Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
using trig substitution \[x = \sin u\] \[dx = \cos u\]

in the end you will just get pi =pi if you want to use this to get numerical approximation for pi, then integrate by computing area under curve using trapezoid rule or simpsons rule or something like that

Yes, but why? And how come we can do that?

why can we use trig sub? you can substitute anything you want to make the integral more manageable
