Hello,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I need to work out the average load power which is expressed by the equation attached;

I am not sure about how I can do this, I am so dumb at calculus.

M,g, f_{r},[tex]\rho[/tex],C,_{D}A, [tex]\delta[/tex] and_{f}Tare one single constant

However,Vwhich stands for velocity varies with time,Tortand its values are formed into a matrix

How can I perform this finite integration? Which command do I need?

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Or, shall I just plot the graph of power, P against time, t and use the command, liketrapto find the area under the curve since I have an array of V against t (V cannot be expressed as a function of t)

I think I am lost as I have not touched calculus for very long long time.

Thank you for your help guys.
