Unformatted text preview: MIT OpenCourseWare http://ocw.mit.edu 18.02 Multivariable Calculus Fall 2007 For information about citing these materials or our Terms of Use, visit: http://ocw.mit.edu/terms . 18.02 Lecture 16. Thu, Oct 18, 2007 Handouts: PS6 solutions, PS7. Double integrals. Recall integral in 1-variable calculus: a b f ( x ) dx = area below graph y = f ( x ) over [ a, b ]. Now: double integral R f ( x, y ) dA = volume below graph z = f ( x, y ) over plane region R . Cut R into small pieces A the volume is approximately f ( x i , y i ) A i . Limit as A gives R f ( x, y ) dA . (picture shown) How to compute the integral? By taking slices: S ( x ) = area of the slice by a plane parallel to yz-plane (picture shown): then x max volume = S ( x ) dx, and for given x , S ( x ) = f ( x, y ) dy. x min In the inner integral, x is a fixed parameter, y is the integration variable. We get an iterated integral. Example 1: z = 1 x 2 y 2 , region x 1 , y 1 (picture shown): 1 1 (1 x 2 y 2 ) dy dx....
