What is the integral of (dy/dt)^2 ?

    What is the integral of (dy/dt)^2 ??

    As the title reads, I was hoping someone knew what the integral with respect to time of [dy/dt]^2 was.

    To clarify, Im looking for: the integral with respect to time of the (time derivative of y)^squared

    sorry, cant figure out how to get it to display math characters

    if S is the integral sign --> need: S{(dy/dt)^2}dt

    To effect that integration more information is needed.

    There are, however, some manipulations you can do; integration by parts gives y dy/dt - ∫y d2y/dt2 dt.
