Homework Help: Calculus ll - Improper Integrals

Posted by Alyssa on Saturday, October 2, 2010 at 9:32pm.

Find the area of the curve y = 1/(x^3) from x = 1 to x = t and evaluate it for t = 10, 100, and 1000. Then find the the total area under this curve for x ≥ 1.

I'm not sure how to do the last part of question ("find the the total area under this curve for x ≥ 1.")

For the area of the curve, I found that the integral from 1 to t is (1/2)-[1/(2t^2)].

I used the equation I found and substituted t for 10, 100, and 1000, and got 0.495, 0.49995, and 0.4999995 respectively.
