Partial Dervative of a Integral

  1. Mar 11, 2013 #1
    Hi all, I'm trying to figure out the following problem:

    Find df/dx, f(x,y)=integral of sqrt(1-t^3)dt from x^2 to x^3.

    Since it is asking to find the derivative with respect to x,should I regard t as a constant?

    Figured I should probably post this in the hw section. Sorry about that.

    Your definition of f(x,y) has no y. Clarify.

    Indeed.
