# P2 - Pure maths - Numerical Integration watch

1. The region bounded by the y-axis, the lines y=1, y=3 and the curve with equation y=ln(x^2) is rotated completely about the y axis.

Find the volume so generated.

Use the trapezium rule with 5 strips of equal width to find an estimate of the area of the region as given.

I have got 5.68, the answer is 5.70. I am dubious over my method.

Could someone kindly show the correct method with fulls steps. Thanks
2. I also get 5.68.

3. How would you integrate (ln x)^2? My mind has gone blank ...

You don't. You need to write it in the form x=f(y) as the area is bounded by the curve and the y axis.
5. So what IS the volume generated? Do you have the answers? I get e³-e. But it's probably wrong as I am not known for my great integration skills!

7. How could I forget good old pi??? Oh well at least I got the rest right!! That's always nice! Thanks btw!

Int. (lnx)^2 dx. = Int. (lnx)(lnx) dx.
Let u = lnx -> u' = 1/x
Let v' = lnx -> v = xlnx - x

-> Int. (lnx)^2 dx = lnx(xlnx - x) - Int. (xlnx - x)/x dx.
= x(lnx)^2 - xlnx - Int. lnx - 1 dx.
= x(lnx)^2 - xlnx - Int. lnx dx + Int. 1 dx
= x(lnx)^2 - xlnx + x - xlnx + x + k
= x(lnx)^2 - 2xlnx + 2x + k
= x(lnx)^2 + 2x(1 - lnx) + k
