Average value of sin(x) integral of sin(x)/x

  1. Nov 11, 2008 #1
    This isn't a homework question by the way
    I was trying to think what the average value of sin(x) was between 0 and pi/2.
    I came to the conclusion it must be integral of sin(x)/x evaluated at those bounds. But I tried to do that in matlab to no avail.
    Any help would be awesome
