    With ln(x) in the denominator like that that's not one of our preatty integrals.

    you will not find a nice closed form for this one

    is it one of those repeating integrating ones

    you mean like if you integrate by parts will you go around in a circle? i don't think so

    i think you will not be able to solve in in the sense that you will not be able to find some nice function \(F\) whose derivative is \(\frac{x}{\ln(x)}\)

    It's the type where our general methods of integrating get us nowhere. We have to leave it in the form of an integral and work with it that way.

    is there another method to equate integral like i know this isnt conservative so

    That's completly different. If you are integrating with repect to y first then you don't need to worry about the expressions in x -- they are essentially constants.

    Wolfram says it's not expressible in terms of elementary functions - http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=integrate+x%2Fln+x

    imo you'd best be off solving it numerically

    look at this one its about setting the right bounds |dw:1363060518856:dw|

    i get why for dx its y^2 to 4 but how much for dy just doing 0 to 2 instead is enough how come it cant be be rootX to 4

    What is correct there? The diagram or the bounds on your integrals?

    the whole thing is correct i just need to covert to an another double integration where im doing it in reverse order dy dx

    but before i do that i wanna know why they set up bounds like that

    Either the bounds are wrong or the shaded area is incorrect. Having \[y^2 \le x \le 4\] is the larger of the two areas there.

    the shaded region is what im integrating over its in the bounds the function is just like a force equation

    where z = ysinx^2

  27. Xavier

    Then your bounds on x should be \[0 \le x \le y^2\]

    oh nvm i see what u mean the diagram is wrong

    so the bottom part shud be the shaded region right

    Ah ok so you know that the curve your have is y^2=x or y=sqrt(x). So y is bounded above by sqrt(x) and below by 0. And x ranges from 0 to 4

    so if i wanted to switch order of integration to dy dx then

    Just use the bounds on y on the inner integral. x bounds go on outer integral \[0 \le y \le \sqrt{x}\ ; 0 \le x \le 4\]

    0 to 4 and 0 to root x
