### Use a double integral in polar coordinates to find the area

So the area is just an intersection of two circles Converting the two circles to polar coordinates, I get: $r(r-2\sin\theta)=0$, and $r(r-2\cos\theta)=0$ Ummm so $r =0$ and r = $2\sin\theta$ ...

### Compute double integral on polar coordinates, find $r(\phi)$

I have the function $f(x,y)=y^2-2x^2y+6x^3-3xy+2y-6x$ and the region $\{y\geq 2x^2-2, y\leq 3x\}$. The region is: To compute the integral in cartesian coordinates: ...

### Integrating $\int_0^2 \int_0^ \sqrt{1-(x-1)^2} \frac{x+y}{x^2+y^2} dy\,dx$ in polar coordinates

I'm having a problem integrating $\displaystyle\int_0^2 \int_0^ \sqrt{1-(x-1)^2} \frac{x+y}{x^2+y^2} \,dy\,dx$. I drew the graph, and it looks like half a circle on top of the $x$ axis. I tried ...

### Integrating $\int_1^2 \int_0^ \sqrt{2x-x^2} \frac{1}{((x^2+y^2)^2} dydx$ in polar coordinates

I'm having a problem converting $\int_1^2 \int_0^ \sqrt{2x-x^2} \frac{1}{(x^2+y^2)^2} dy dx$ to polar coordinates. I drew the graph using my calculator, which looked like half a circle on the x ...

### Finding the length of a spiral

I need to find the length of a spiral. The spiral start at a certain radius $R_1$ and ends at a smaller radius $R_2$. As the spiral spins inwards, the distance between each arm of the spiral decreases ...

### Tranforming to polar co-ordinates

$$I = \int_0^1\int_0^{\sqrt{1-x^2}} xy \, dy\, dx$$ By transforming to circular polar co-ordinates, evaluate I. How do I do this? Is there a formula/strategy for doing this that works with ...

### Why is the integral of the arc length in polar form not similar to the length of the arc of a circular sector?

So I learned that the area enclosed by a polar function is computed by $$A = \int \frac{r(\theta)^2}{2}d\theta.$$ Which, I learned, comes somewhat from the formula for the area of a circular sector ...

### Ellipse region in polar coordinates

if I want to write the region in $R^2$ bounded by the ellipse $$10x^2 + 17 y^2 = 29$$ In polar coordinates($x=r\cos \theta, y= r \sin \theta$), how can I find the limit of $r$?

### approximate this fancy looking double integral

$$\int_{0}^{2\pi} \int_{0}^{1}r^5\sin^22\theta\left(1-r^2 \right)^2\sqrt{1+\left(1+ \cos^2\theta \right)36r^2 }\hspace{1mm}drd\theta$$ I tried integrating myself, spent many hours but could not ...

### Computing the enclosed area formed by a curve

Given the following curve: ${(\frac{x^2}{a^2}+\frac{y^2}{b^2})}^2=\frac{x^2}{a^2}-\frac{y^2}{b^2}$, $a,b>0$ Find the space enclosed by it. Now, obviously (I think) the idea is to ...

### Find k in $\int_2^{\infty} \frac{k}{\sqrt{2\pi}} \exp^{-\frac{1}{2} x^2} \, dx$

I'm trying to solve for k in the pdf: $$\int_2^{\infty} \frac{k}{\sqrt{2\pi}} \exp^{-\frac{1}{2} x^2} \, dx$$ My solution (which is wrong): Take the square of the ...
