Homework Help: Find the area of the loop using Green's Theorem

  1. Apr 5, 2014 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Problem in attachment.

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Unfortunately I was unable to attend my only class where my proffessor taught this method of solving area. Plus my prof and classmates won't help me.

    Does anybody know how to solve area using this method?

    Well, as a start, you can't go wrong by following the directions in the problem statement.

    Why don't you try that and see what happens? You can always ask a follow-up question if you get stuck along the way.

    y = tx

    dy/dt = x

    dy = xdt

    I don't know what x should equal in terms of t.

    Am I on the right track?

    Put y = tx in the original equation to get x in terms of t.
