let $R = 2(1+\cos{t})$, $r = 2$How to find the integral of the function f(x,y) = y over the region D which isinside the cardioid r = 2 + 2 cosÎ¸ and outside the circle r=2?

note $R \ge r \implies \cos{t} \ge 0 \implies t \in \left[-\dfrac{\pi}{2},\dfrac{\pi}{2}\right]$

using symmetry ...

$\displaystyle A = 2\int_0^{\pi/2} \dfrac{R^2-r^2}{2} \, dt$

$\displaystyle A = \int_0^{\pi/2} 4(1+\cos{t})^2 - 4 \, dt$

btw, I don't agree w/ the book answer

Please give theHow to find . . .

The question is from the Double Integration concept. I was asked to integrate by finding the limits as well for the following question.:

Find the Integral of f(x,y)=y over the region D which is inside the cardioid r = 2 + 2 cos theta and outside the circle r = 2.

I was confused with the limits to be chosen for the integration.

The answer given in my textbook is outer limit is chosen from 0 to pi/2 and inner limit is chosen from 2 to 2(1 + cos theta) and then this has been integrated by putting the jacobian and the answer comes out to be 22/3. As I understood, this is only for the upper half plane. For if the entire symmetric region was to be calculated, then the limit should have been from -pi/2 to pi/2 and the volume would have been zero. (As the negative and positive would have canceled out). However, since upper half is under consideration, I think 22/3 was to be calculated and the above question should have mentioned that the area under consideration is in the upper half plane.

The question is perfectly clear and obviously cylindrical coordinates apply (\(\displaystyle dA=rdrd\theta\)). Cardioid is inside circle and symmetric with x axis.

\(\displaystyle A=2\int_{0}^{\pi}\int_{2(1-\cos \theta)}^{2}rdrd\theta\)

Edit: Whoops. Thought radius of circle was extent of cardioid. Use above but instead of starting \(\displaystyle \theta\) at 0 start it where cardioid intersects circle, in this case \(\displaystyle \pi\)/2.

I was a little terse. Sorry.

Step 1) Draw a picture.

Step 2) Draw a picture.

Step 3) Draw a picture

Step 4) What is element of area? rdrd\(\displaystyle \theta\).

Step 5) What is area? \(\displaystyle \iint_{}^{}rdrd\theta.\)

Step 6} What are limits of integration:

Draw a line at angle \(\displaystyle \theta\) that intersects area you are looking for- in the area, where does it start and where does it end? Those are limits of integration for dr. Where does \(\displaystyle \theta\) start and end? Those are limits of integration for d\(\displaystyle \theta\).

Step 7) Do integration.

\(\displaystyle A=2\int_{0}^{\pi}\int_{2(1-\cos \theta)}^{2}rdrd\theta\)

I have a picture which makes everything perfectly clear. Unfortunately I can't figure out how to post it. If you select add image icon, it asks for url. What url?You found one mistake, but you didn't spot that you'd misinterpreted the question, so you've still done the wrong thing.

The last time I tried to add an image there was an option below editing box for adding image and you could select it from your computer.
