Homework Help: Triple Integral Evaluation

  1. Dec 6, 2006 #1
    Triple Integral Evaluation (quick and easy)

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    \int_{0}^{1} \int_{x^2}^{1} \int_{0}^{3y} ({y+2x^2z})dz dy dx

    2. Relevant equations


    3. The attempt at a solution

    Here is what I got at the end (the LaTeX takes too long to code in here, plus its not showing up):

    59/36 because after integrating the whole thing, and then putting in the very last limits (0 and 1), all of the x's go away leaving just the coefficients which I worked out to get 59/36...can someone please verify this for me? i've checked it twice and got the same solution..it takes about 3 minutes to do if you're a genious (unlike me, so i'm trying to appeal to the math geniuses)..

    I get (actually Maple) [itex] \frac{32}{21} [/itex]

    ∫{0}^{3y}(y+2x²z)dz= 9x²y²+3y²

    ∫_{x²}^{1}( 9x²y²+3y²)dy= -3x^{8}-x^{6}+3x²+1

    ∫_{0}^{1}(-3x^{8}-x^{6}+3x²+1) dx= ((32)/(21))

    did it by hand and got 32/21

    I did it by hand, too. :tongue2: I had to type everything and then use the "ctrl c-ctrl v" keys. It's not as easy as it seems...:biggrin:
