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

For 1 and 2 I want to calculate rms then

[tex]x_{rms}=\sqrt{\frac{1}{n}\sum_{i=1}^{n}x_i^2}\Rightarrow x_{1,2}=\sqrt{\frac{1}{2}(1^2+2^2)}=\sqrt{\frac{5}{2}}[/tex]

And also

[tex]x_{rms}=\sqrt{\frac{1}{x_2-x_1}\int_{x_1}^{x_2}f^2(x)dx}[/tex]

For the function [tex]f(x)=x[/tex], [tex]x_1=1[/tex], [tex]x_2=2[/tex]

[tex]x_{rms}=\sqrt{\frac{1}{2-1}\int_{1}^{2}x^2dx}=\sqrt{\frac{7}{3}}[/tex]

Please explain to me where I do wrong.

Thanks
