Integration question

  1. Apr 22, 2006 #1
    I have a question asking me to find the area under a curve, the curve is,

    y=10/x^2

    I know the process to find the area but I can't find how to integrate the fraction, some help would be appreciated,

    thanks, dan

    Are you aware that [itex]\int x^n dx= \frac{1}{n+1}x^{n+1}+ C[/itex]?

    Are you aware that [itex]\frac{1}{x^2}= x^{-2}[/itex]?
