    Double integral finding the area

    Oh I see what ive been doing now. When I evaluated theta at 0 I was getting -2. I forgot to multiply this by 1/2 which would have given me 3(pi)(-2+2)/2 or 3(pi)/2 for my final answer. Thank you so much for all of your help I was stuck on that problem for awhile. :smile:

    Double integral finding the area

    Homework Statement Use a double integral to find the area of the region bounded by the curve r= 1+sin(theta)? Homework Equations The Attempt at a Solution I can't figure out what theta is intregrated from. I've tried from -(pi)/2 -> +(pi)/2 and that doesnt work. I've also tried...

    Find point d on the line l closest to point c

    The point I picked on the line l for the parametric equation was not point (1,1,2)... So whatever point you pick on the line for your parametric equation is that your t=0 point? If I were to pick point (1,1,2) on the line l for the parametric equation then it becomes x=1+t u=1+2t z=2+3t...

    Find point d on the line l closest to point c

    idk if you change it by one I guess you reach along the line one. I just don't know this stuff because we haven't covered it yet in class yet we have homework over it.

    Find point d on the line l closest to point c

    oh sorry, the length between the vector and line l is 3.

    Find point d on the line l closest to point c

    I know that the magnitude of the vector with the point c is 5. So using cos(36.7)=x/5 I get x=4 this is the length along line l. However this is in three dimensions so I thought that there was something else I had to do.

    Find point d on the line l closest to point c

    Homework Statement Find point d on the line l closest to the point c (1,1,7). Point c is on the end of a vector who's origin (1,1,2) is on line l. There is an imaginary line that connects point c to point d. This imaginary line is perpendicular to the line l. This problem is relating to...

    How do I draw a line that is 50 deg west or 15 deg east etc

    Yeah I figured it out. It was talking about the dip for the west direction not the strike. I was mixing two different things up. Thats why it was making any sense... Thank you

    How to get a dc power supply to produce 2V at 10-20 milliamps?

    I just got a adjustable dc power supply and I cannot figure out why it will not produce 1-2V at very small amps such as 10-20 milli amps? Is this not possible with a common dc power supply? I would greatly appreciate some help with this...

    What is the integral 1/x log(x) or lnx?

    ok thanks, When looking at more complex solutions sometimes there are many logx's how am I supposed to know which one is logx and which one is not really logx?

    What is the integral 1/x log(x) or lnx?

    Homework Statement I know it is supposed to be lnx however I find something peculiar. When I integrate it in wolfram alpha they give the integral as log(x). What the heck is going on here!?! Homework Equations The Attempt at a Solution

    Intersection of two graphs

    Thanks, I did draw them out and the graphs intersect at x=3 and x=-3 They do not intersect at x=2 and x=-2 even though 2 and -2 solve the equation when I set the two functions equal to eachother.
