An integral 2008-01-23
From Russell:
I checked out the integration site, but would like an explanation for integrating this integral
Tan^3[x] * _dx__
Hope this input is correct! the part that throws me off is Tan^3[x], if it was squared rather than cubed I would have a easier time dealing with this one.

Odd powers of sine and cosine 2003-06-25
From Antonio:
Can you please tell me how to integrate a trig function involving sine and cosine? I know if the powers of both the sine and cosine are even and nonnegative, then I can make repeated use of the power-reducing formulas. But for the question I have on my hand, the powers of both sine and cosine are odd: ( sin3x + cos7x ) dx.

Integration of 1/(2+cos(x)) 2003-01-07
From A student:
integral from pi to 0 of

dx/(2+cos x)

i used the substitution t=tan(x/2) and i ended up with

integral from +infinity to 0 of


which looks like an inverse tan function , and i ended up with sqr(27)/2 pi , which is not the same as my calculator's answer , so i suspct i am doing some thing wrong. can some one tell me where i am going wrong please.

Integrating x^x 2002-06-18
From Jeremy:
I am a student at the University of Kansas and I am wondering if there is a general anti-derivative for x x (i.e. the integral of x x dx)? I've looked in a bunch of Table of Integrals and have found nothing (can you guys find it?), so I'm sort of wondering if this may be a research type question.

Oil revenue 2001-04-21
From Brian:
Suppose that t months from now an oil well will be producing crude oil at the rate of r(t), not a constant, barrels per month and that the price of crude oil will be p(t), not a constant, dollars per barrel. Assume that the oil is sold as soon as it is extracted from the ground.
  1. Find an expression for the total revenue from the oil well, R(t).

  2. A certain oil well that currently yields 400 barrels of crude oil a month will run dry in 2 years. The price of crude oil is currently $18 per barrel and is expected to rise at a constant rate of 3 cents per barrel per month. What will be the total revenue from this well? {Hint: Model the degraded production rate with the equation:
    r(t) = (A-Bt)e0.04t}

Comparing an integral and a sum 2000-11-21
From Douglas Norberg:
A fellow teacher asked me about a problem she wanted to give to her students. It involved whether to take a million dollars or a penny doubled a number of times. I was able to determine the number must have been .01 * 230 which is about $10 million and a lot more than $1 million. To check that I was right I used a spreadsheet and did a Riemann sum.

When I finished I reasoned that I had done the task in several steps and I could have done it in 1 step. Thus I integrated .01 * 2x from 0 through 30 but the number I got was $15,490,820.0324. Why the difference?
