Unformatted text preview: MAT 2020 Term 11, 10-11 LAB 8 (Thurs, Feb 3) PART I. AREAS AND VOLUMES: THINKING X AS A FUNCTION OF Y INSTEAD OF Y AS A FUNCTION OF X Sometimes for these problems it’s easier to deal with ftmctional boundaries on the left and right instead of the top and bottom. In this case we have to think of the boundaries in terms of x = fly) and integrate with respect to y. Here’s the stereotypical case. d The integral for the area would be I ( f ( y) — g(y))ajz . Note that the function on the right of the picture is the “higher” function (the x values are larger.). For instance to find the area bounded by the curves x = 2y2 and x = 4 + yz. [Recall that implicitplot needs to be used when you do not have equations that give y as a function of x. For instance, im lici lot([x = 2*yA2, x = thy/‘2], x = 0 .. 10, = —5 .. 5)]. P tP Y X :gLyL L7 197 2 Then the integral is f (4+ y2)—(2y2)dy. 1 —2 Sometimes areas can be calculated either way. For instance for the area bounded by the curves y = 2x and y = x2. Ifwe think y as a function ofx, i 7:1Xj ...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
