Hi guys, I'm stuck on this question in exam revision:

I need to estimate the area under the following curves (I don't have the equations of the curves)

http://img819.imageshack.us/img819/3249/question.jpg [Broken]

The curves are magnitude diagrams in the log-log scale.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I've tried a general estimation (using rectangles and trapezoids) treating it as a linear graph but I come up with inconsistent answers. I've searched everywhere looking for a method to estimate area in the log-log space.

I'm completely stumped. Thanks for the help

Cheers
