00:00:01.230 --> 00:00:07.720
Consider the curve defined by the parametric equations π₯ equals two cos π‘ and π¦ equals three sin π‘.
00:00:08.060 --> 00:00:12.780
Find the indefinite integral of negative six sin squared π‘ with respect to π‘.
00:00:13.100 --> 00:00:17.690
Find the area under the curve when π‘ is greater than or equal to zero and less than or equal to π.
00:00:18.050 --> 00:00:24.550
Now, by taking π‘ is greater than or equal to zero and less than or equal to two π, find the total area inside the curve.
00:00:24.990 --> 00:00:28.650
Now, here, weβve been given the equation of a curve defined parametrically.
00:00:28.780 --> 00:00:32.910
And the first part of this question really doesnβt seem to have anything to do with the setup.
00:00:33.050 --> 00:00:37.150
Weβre looking to integrate negative six sin squared π‘ with respect to π‘.
00:00:37.290 --> 00:00:40.800
But actually, these things are intrinsically linked, and weβll see how in a moment.
00:00:40.880 --> 00:00:43.710
But letβs first begin by evaluating that integral.
00:00:43.940 --> 00:00:47.270
Weβre going to use a trigonometric identity to find this integral.
00:00:47.610 --> 00:00:52.890
We know that sin squared π‘ is equal to one minus cos two π‘ all divided by two.
00:00:53.280 --> 00:01:00.850
And so, actually, we can evaluate the indefinite integral of negative six times one minus cos two π‘ over two with respect to π‘.
00:01:01.420 --> 00:01:04.090
Letβs begin by dividing through by a factor of two.
00:01:04.460 --> 00:01:10.260
And we also know that we can take any constant factors outside of our integral and focus on integrating the function itself.
00:01:10.300 --> 00:01:15.580
So we have negative three times the integral of one minus cos of two π‘ with respect to π‘.
00:01:15.820 --> 00:01:17.600
Well, we can integrate this term by term.
00:01:17.880 --> 00:01:21.160
The integral of one with respect to π‘ is fairly straightforward.
00:01:21.310 --> 00:01:22.300
Itβs simply π‘.
00:01:22.620 --> 00:01:32.630
We also know that the integral of cos of ππ₯ with respect to π₯, where π is some real constant, is one over π times sin of ππ₯ plus of course some constant of integration π.
00:01:32.940 --> 00:01:38.230
So the integral of negative cos of two π‘ is negative one over two times sin of two π‘.
00:01:38.340 --> 00:01:39.980
This is an indefinite integral.
00:01:39.980 --> 00:01:41.630
So weβll add a constant of integration.
00:01:41.660 --> 00:01:42.730
Letβs call that π΄ for now.
00:01:43.010 --> 00:01:45.260
Our final step is to distribute our parentheses.
00:01:45.420 --> 00:01:52.670
By multiplying each term by negative three, we get negative three π‘ plus three over two times sin of two π‘ plus π.
00:01:52.850 --> 00:01:57.920
Now weβve changed that from π΄ to π because technically our earlier constant has been multiplied by negative three.
00:01:58.130 --> 00:01:59.140
So itβs now a different value.
00:01:59.780 --> 00:02:06.700
The second part of this question asks us to find the area under the curve when π‘ is greater than or equal to zero and less than or equal to π.
00:02:07.130 --> 00:02:13.510
Now rather than trying to define our curve using a Cartesian equation β i.e., π¦ is some function of π₯.
00:02:13.560 --> 00:02:26.940
We recall that the area of a curve defined parametrically by the functions π₯ of π‘ and π¦ of π‘ for values of π‘ between π and π is the definite integral between π and π of π¦ of π‘ times π₯ prime of π‘ with respect to π‘.
00:02:27.130 --> 00:02:31.310
Now of course π₯ prime of π‘ is the derivative of π₯ with respect to π‘.
00:02:31.530 --> 00:02:33.430
So, we might write that as dπ₯ by dπ‘.
00:02:33.660 --> 00:02:40.160
And we recall that π₯ is two cos π‘ and that the derivative of cos of π₯ with respect to π₯ is negative sin π₯.
00:02:40.240 --> 00:02:43.690
And so dπ₯ by dπ‘ must be negative two sin π‘.
00:02:43.900 --> 00:02:58.160
And so, the area under the curve for π‘ is greater than or equal to zero and less than or equal to π is the definite integral between zero and π of three sin π‘ times that derivative, times negative two sin π‘ with respect to π‘.
00:02:58.450 --> 00:03:02.330
And if we simplify that integral, we get negative six sin squared π‘.
00:03:02.570 --> 00:03:05.080
Now we integrated that in the first part of this question.
00:03:05.230 --> 00:03:09.390
Since we have a definite integral, the constants of integration end up canceling.
00:03:09.610 --> 00:03:15.890
So, actually, we just need to evaluate negative three π‘ plus three over two sin of two π‘ between π and zero.
00:03:16.320 --> 00:03:24.280
Thatβs negative three π plus three over two sin of two π minus negative three times zero plus three over two times sin of two times zero.
00:03:24.610 --> 00:03:28.980
Now, quite strangely, that integral gives us negative three π.
00:03:29.250 --> 00:03:31.610
But of course, we know weβre dealing with an area.
00:03:31.700 --> 00:03:35.970
Now itβs note though when we sketch this curve in the Cartesian plane, it lies below the π₯-axis.
00:03:36.120 --> 00:03:37.660
In fact, the opposite is true.
00:03:38.120 --> 00:03:46.060
The reason the integral yields a negative answer here is due to the fact that the curve is traced from right to left rather than left to right.
00:03:46.210 --> 00:03:54.120
And so, the area under our curve when π‘ is greater than or equal to zero and less than or equal to π is three π or three π square units.
00:03:54.770 --> 00:04:00.540
Now, the third part of this question asks us to take π‘ from greater than or equal to zero and less than or equal to two π.
00:04:00.770 --> 00:04:05.010
Now, if we were to sketch this curve out, we get this sort of oval shape as shown.
00:04:05.360 --> 00:04:08.900
Weβre completing a full turn, and so there is no overlapping.
00:04:09.080 --> 00:04:16.550
The area is therefore the definite integral between zero and two π of negative six sin squared π‘ with respect to π‘.
00:04:16.930 --> 00:04:21.320
This time, substituting zero and two π into our earlier integral.
00:04:21.510 --> 00:04:25.860
And we get negative six π plus three over two sin of four π take away zero.
00:04:26.030 --> 00:04:28.210
Which this time gives us negative six π.
00:04:28.480 --> 00:04:34.020
Now, once again, the negative is because the curve is being sketched out from right to left rather than left to right.
00:04:34.110 --> 00:04:38.710
And so, we say the total area inside the curve is six π or six π square units.
