double integration

could someone please check my work on the following problem:

Find the volume under $z= 2x + y^2$ and above the region bounded by $x= y^2$ and $x= y^3$.

endpoints of region: (0,0) and (1,1)
$$V = \int_{0}^{1}\int_{0}^{1} (2x + y^2) \,dx\,dy = \int_{0}^{1} [x^2 + xy^2]|_{0}^{1}\,dy = (x^2 y + \frac{1}{3}xy^2)|_{(0,0)}^{(1,1)} = \frac{4}{3}$$

 you set your limits point incorrectly, they do not only depend on the end points, (0,0) and (1,1), but also depend on the curve x=y^2 and x=y^3 [quote]And the integral be a triple one...?[/tex] can you explain your thought?

double integration

Shouldn't the volume of a domain D from R^{3} have the following form:
$$V_{D}=\iiint_{D} dx \ dy \ dz$$

Daniel.

 you set your limits point incorrectly, they do not only depend on the end points
So it should be:
$$V = \int_{0}^{1}\int_{y^3}^{y^2} (2x + y^2) \,dx\,dy = \int_{0}^{1} [x^2 + xy^2]|_{y^3}^{y^2}\,dy = \int_{0}^{1} [(y^4 - y^4) - (y^6 - y^5)]\,dy = \int_{0}^{1} y^5 - y^6 \,dy = [\frac{1}{6}y^6 - \frac{1}{7}y^7]|_{0}^{1} = \fract{1}{6} - \frac{1}{7} = \frac{1}{42} ?$$

Somewhat confused.

Daniel. P.S.Pay attention to the signs.

 Quote by marlon $$V = \int_{0}^{1}\int_{y^2}^{y^3} (2x + y^2) \,dx\,dy$$ This is what it should be. Keep in mind that you first integrate to x and then to y. This is because x is given as a function of y and NOT the other way around. In your figure, you need to look at the Y-axis as the HORIZONTAL axis (rotation of 90°). Then you will see that for y going from 0 to 1, the y^3 is ABOVE the y^2 regards marlon

What...? What's your definition for "ABOVE"...?

To the OP:disregard Marlon's post.Your integration (the one you started with was good,the arithmetics that followed was sloppy).

Daniel.

this is what it should be ... I was wrong. Sorry bout that. I mixed the two functions

marlon

 okay i fixed the math in $$V = \int_{0}^{1}\int_{y^3}^{y^2} (2x + y^2) \,dx\,dy$$ and got 4/3. I think this is right.

 Quote by tandoorichicken $$\int_{0}^{1} [x^2 + xy^2]|_{y^3}^{y^2}\,dy = \int_{0}^{1} [(y^4 - y^4) - (y^6 - y^5)]\,dy$$
 OMG stupid arithmetic $$\int_{0}^{1} [x^2 + xy^2]|_{y^3}^{y^2}\,dy = \int_{0}^{1} [(y^4 + y^4) - (y^6 + y^5)]\,dy = (\frac{2}{5}y^5 - \frac{1}{7}y^7 - \frac{1}{6}y^6)|_{0}^{1} = \frac{19}{210}$$ Finally. Thanks guys.
