## rosho 2 years ago how to find the area between y=sinx, y=cosx, y=0 between {0,pi/2} ans: 2-sqrt2

Cant you find the middle point? Then solve using two integrals?

3. rosho

i tried that.

4. MarcLeclair

I mean they should intersect at pi/6 ( where they have the same value) --> unit circle I believe ( I don't remember so much)

5. rosho

sqrt2/2

6. rosho

and this is calc II

7. MarcLeclair

Yeah and then integrate both int ( pi/6 - sinx ) + int ( cos x - pi/6) no? Yeah I'm taking cal II too ( well in quebec, might be different curiculum)

8. MarcLeclair

I think im totally wrong though x.x I was just trying to help. Sorry if im mistaken

9. Outkast3r09

what are you trying to do?

10. Outkast3r09

calculus or regular

11. rosho

calc 2

12. rosho

finding the area between 0, sinx and cosx on the interval of 0,pi/2

14. rosho

pretty much.

15. Outkast3r09

so you'll need to split the integral up

17. Outkast3r09

so you need the intersection point

18. rosho

19. Outkast3r09

the reason why you need two? If you do high - low , they switch at the intersection

20. Outkast3r09

alright so what are you asking... are you done?

$A = \int_y\int_xdxdy=\left[\int_{x=0}^{\pi\over4}\int_{y=0}^{\sin x}+\int_{x={\pi\over4}}^{\pi\over2}\int_{y=0}^{\cos x}\right]dxdy\\ A_1 = \int_{x=0}^{\pi\over4}\left[\int_{y=0}^{\sin x}dy\right]dx=\int_0^{\pi\over4}\sin x\,dx=1-{1\over\sqrt{2}}\\ A_2= \int_{x={\pi\over4}}^{\pi\over2}\left[\int_{y=0}^{\cos x}dy\right]dx=\int_{\pi\over4}^{\pi\over2}\cos x\,dx=1-{1\over\sqrt{2}}\\ A=A_1+A_2=2-{2\over\sqrt{2}}\\ A=2-\sqrt{2}$
