is anyone here good at it becuase i need help...

Yea i could probably be of some help, i passed it last semester with an A. What's the problem?
I just got a 55 in AP Calculus, so I probably can't help you, lol.
Im in calc III right now, thats the one with multivariable vector valued functions, greens/stokes stuff; I should be able to help...

Shoot!
i missed class like all last week because i was sick and my teacher handed out a takehome quiz... its on integrals and pretty much the only thing i learned about it was that you take the anti-derivative, but ik theres way more to it.

one question is
S(X^5-3X+(2/X)-2)dx=

note:S is the integral symbol

Find the anti-derivative? And if you have bounds, solve. Thats what I would do.

I guess I know what to do, but the reason I'm failing is cause I would get the wrong anti-derivative.
That's easy as fvck:

f(x) = (x^6)/6 - (3/2)x^2 + 2*ln(x) - 2x + C

Art & Lutherie
All you have to do is integrate. If you can do that, you're good.

The answer is (x^6)/6 - (3x^2)/2 + 2ln(x) - 2x+c

EDIT: If you have limits of integration there's no c, you evaluate
hmm i understand the most part except 2ln(x)... is there another way to write that because i dont think my teacher went over natural logs(i think thats what it means)

isnt like 1/x the derivative of ln(x)? not sure..clarify?

^No, the derivative of lnx is 1/x, therefore, the antiderivative of 1/x is lnx.

this next one seems trickier...
S Xdx / sqrt(3x^2 -1)

Use substitution.

u = 3x^2 - 1
du = 6x dx ===> dx = du / 6x

Replacing dx with du and sqrt(3x^2 - 1) with u makes the integral

integral( x * (du / 6x) * 1/u)

Xs cancel out, leaving: 1/6 * integral(du / u)

Integrate to get (1/6)*ln(3x^2 - 1) + C

1/6 sqrt(3x^2 -1)

derivative of 1/6 sqrt(3x^2 -1) =
[1/6]*[1/sqrt(3x^2 -1) ]*[6x] = x/sqrt(3x^2 -1)

I'm pretty sure.

No, the derivative of that would be
x/(3x^2 -1), you're missing the sqrt.

The problem is that you replaced sqrt(3x^2 -1) with 3x^2 -1 (u instead of sqrt(u)).
Oh lulz, I messed it up.

integral( x * (du / 6x) * 1/sqrt(u))

Xs cancel out, leaving: 1/6 * integral(du / sqrt(u))

Integrate to get (1/6)*2sqrt(3x^2 - 1) + C

which gives (1/3)sqrt(3x^2 - 1) + C

Thanks gibsonpengiun for pointing out my stupidity and carelessness in reading posts.

I wrote this up, just because I can (and needed a break from homework).

Alright, so integral of:
x((3x^2 -1)^(-1/2))
= ((3x^2 -1)^(1/2))*1/6
When you take the derivative of that, you get:
((3x^2 -1)^((1/2)-1))*1/6*(derivative of (3x^2 -1))
derivative of (3x^2 -1) = 6x
=((3x^2 -1)^(-1/2))*1/6*6x
6s cancel, replace ((3x^2 -1)^(-1/2)) with 1/((3x^2 -1)^(1/2))
= x/((3x^2 -1)^(1/2))
= x/sqrt(3x^2 -1)

PENGUINEDIT: Darkstar wrote it out better than I did, I do stuff like that pretty much mentally because I've been doing it for a while now. And the user above me has nice handwriting.

That looks like some spherical coordinate stuff I have to do for my calc III final tomorrow morning.... There's so much stuff on the exam and I'm so screwed.
alright cool, thanks
i have one last question and ill try to figure out the rest,

Evaluate dy/dt for the function at the point
x^3+y^3=9; dx/dt=-3, x=1, y=2

^Yeah. Had to integrate by parts 4 times - but if you're good at bookkeeping, it's not so bad. Don't forget you Jacobian, either (r^2 * Sin(theta) in spherical, usually).

Yeah, that's the easy part.

I've been having a much harder time with these line integrals, integrals of vector fields, integrals with respect to arc length, integrals over a surface, etc. etc.

sorry it's blurry

Please make sure you understand what I did, and if you have questions - ask!

I think you messed up on the leading term there buddy. Exponent on the x for x/6 should 6. LaTeX ftw
Logic Smogic, in the line after you say chain rule, how did you get the constants of 3 on both sides?

right on. it should be a 6. Fixed the original in paint.

Quote by ludachris0606
Logic Smogic, in the line after you say chain rule, how did you get the constants of 3 on both sides?

When you differentiate y(t)^3 with respect to t, you must differentiate the function (in this case y^3), and then multiply by the derivative of the embedded function (in this case y(t)).

So the derivative of y^3 is 3*y^2.
The derivative of y(t) is dy/dt.

So the result is (3*y^2)*(dy/dt).
Same goes for the right side.

ohh okay...
Yeah the power looked like a 3 to me after that still so I was confused...

and the final answer should be 3/4 right?
because 3((1^2)/(2^2)) = 3(1/4) = (3/4)

Heh, sorry it's so blurry. Shaky hands, I guess - and the flash washes it all out.

But yeah, after doing the chain rule, they should both be 2's.
and the final answer should be 3/4 right?
because 3((1^2)/(2^2)) = 3(1/4) = (3/4)

nah dont worry about it you helped me out a lot...
thank you so much
atleast now i have a basic understanding
