Example Questions

Example Question #181 : Definite Integrals

Solve the definite integral by using u-substitution.

Possible Answers:

Correct answer:

Explanation:

So first things first, we identify what our u should be. If we look at this for chain rule our inside function would be the  in the . Therefore we use this as our u. 

So we start with our u.

Next we derive.

Solve for dx.

Substitute it back in.

Simplify. If all the xs don't cross out, we have done something wrong.

Integrate.

Plug in the original.

Plug in values and substract

Example Question #186 : Definite Integrals

Possible Answers:

Correct answer:

Explanation:

First, integrate. Remember to raise the exponent by 1 and also put that result on the denominator:

Now, evaluate at 2 and then 0. Subtract the results:

Simplify to get your answer:

Example Question #187 : Definite Integrals

Evaluate the following:

Possible Answers:

Correct answer:

Explanation:

Solving this problem first requires knowledge of antiderivatives and their rules as well as the properties of definite integrals.

Example Question #188 : Definite Integrals

Solve the following definite integral.

Possible Answers:

Correct answer:

Explanation:

Example Question #189 : Definite Integrals

If 

Possible Answers:

Not enough information.

Correct answer:

Explanation:

If we think of the anti-derivative as computing the area under the curve, then between  and , the area under our function equals .  We also know that between  and , the area under our function equals .  Then, to find the area under the function between  and , we must simply subtract the other two areas.  Therefore:

Example Question #190 : Definite Integrals

If , what is ?

Possible Answers:

Correct answer:

Explanation:

Remember that the anti-derivative computes the area under the curve of the function between the  values specified by the upper and lower integral limits.  In this question, the upper and lower integral limits match!  This, by definition, means that the integral equals   There is no area if you start and end at the same point!
