Homework Help: Another double integral question

  1. Jul 12, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Given the integral (shown in attachment) make a clear sketch of the region of integration and express the integral with the order of integration reversed. Evaluate the integral you found in (ii).

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Everything is in the attachment. I kinda got lost in evaluating the integral. Please check whether everything else is right and hopefully im on the right track!

    If you have Firefox, install the Add-on "Imagebot" and it's easier than pie!

    There's an error in this step:
    [tex]-\frac{1}{2}4x^3(x^4+y^2)^{-3/2}[/tex] is not the same as [tex] \frac{-2x^3}{\sqrt{x^4+y^2}}[/tex]

    That's about all I can decipher from your working. The limits appear to be correct in the new order of integration. If you're doing integration by parts, you didn't include the expression for dv and v.

    Cheers mate, finally got the answer. i made a mistake with my substitution.
