Can some one intergrate 2*((r^

Can some one intergrate 2*((r^

Can some one intergrate 2*((r^

Can some one intergrate

 2*((r^2-x^2)^0.5)dr  from (r-c) to r

 where r is defined as 7
 but c is undefined

 thus you get an expression for 'c' that I can substitute
 into another equation and then solve for 'c'

This should be the small area of a circle divide my a chord length


RE: Can some one intergrate 2*((r^

You might want to work on your notation a bit.

It does not make sense in my opinion - what is x? why does r appear in the limits, and in the formula, and as the integrating variable?

However on the assumption you are correct

the indefinite integral comes to


where A is a constant

But as I said, probably meaningless

RE: Can some one intergrate 2*((r^

I believe the intended intral is:

integral(a,b, sqrt(R^2 - x^2),dx)
then MathCAD can symbollically
evaluate this integral. Also note
that the limits are:

a = C (Not R - C),


b = R (radius of the circle)

Incidentally, C <= R.

You may want to consider changing the lower
limit to C a percentage of radius !!

Take care,

The Mathemagician !

RE: Can some one intergrate 2*((r^

integral of 2*(r^2-x^2)^0.5 dr is:
- r*(r^2-x^2)^0.5

Hope this helps
