Question 2 Compute the arc length of the curve y = x 3 / 6+1 / (2 x ) from x = 2 to x = 3. Solution. The arc length is given by R 3 2 p 1 + ( y 0 ) 2 dx . First we simplify the integrand: y 0 = x 2 2 - 1 2 x 2 , 1 + ( y 0 ) 2 = 1 + ± x 2 2 - 1 2 x 2 ² 2 = 1 + ± x 4 4 - 1 2 + 1 4 x 4 ² = x 4 4 + 1 2 + 1 4 x 4 = ± x 2 2 + 1 2 x 2 ² 2 , p 1 + ( y 0 ) 2 = ³ ³ ³ ³ x 2 2 + 1 2 x 2 ³ ³ ³ ³ = x 2 2 + 1 2 x 2 (absolute value is redundant for 2 x 3). Now proceed to compute the arc length: Z 3 2 p 1 + ( y 0 ) 2 dx = Z 3 2 ± x 2 2 + 1 2 x 2 ² dx = ± x 3 6 - 1 2 x ²³ ³ ³ ³ 3 2 = ± 9 2 - 1 6 ² - ± 4 3 - 1 4 ² = 13 4 . Question 3 Compute the following integrals using integration by parts or any other technique. (a) Z ln xdx : Use integration by parts with u = ln x , v = x (so that dv = 1 · dx ): Z ln xdx = Z ln x · 1 dx = x · ln x - Z x d dx (ln x ) dx = x ln x - Z 1 dx = x ln x - x + C (b) Z x ln xdx : Use integration by parts with
