Just do the substitution.
in part b, let [itex] k^3 = \rho ^2 [/itex]
Solve the resulting quadratic.
k^3 = p^2 implies k^(3/2) = p.
I see now, so silly. Thanks
Still cannot get answer.
You've gotten "p", now you have to find "k".
How is that going to lead me to the answer?
If I substitute "p" back to "k". I don't see how I can get 0.44
What is an expression for k in terms of p?
And you'll get an extraneous solution, but which one is right will be fairly clear when you get them. Look at bounds of your integration. Then look at the k's you get.
Do you see an error here?
I don't quite understand, how i'm I to know 0.29 instead of 1.71 was to be used?
What is 1.79^(2/3)? Why is it that k clearly can't take on that value?
Because of: ?
You've pretty much got the right idea. When you split the integral from 0 to 1 into an integral from 0 to k and an integral from k to 1, you tacitly assumed that k was between 0 and 1. Otherwise, what you did wouldn't be valid.
Ok, thanks Mystic998 and everyone else who helped out.
