Hey all, this is my first post here,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have a question that is kind of annoying me: I came across this equation:

dT=1/2 * [(m/L)dy]*[yx/L]^2. Only y is a variable here

I need to integrate it, but my question is do I change the location of the dy and solve it as: ∫y^2 dy? I believe that this is what is done in the book but im not sure if this is correct.

Any help will be appreciated. :D

# Dy multiplied by y (order matters?)
