Find the area bounded by x^(2/3) and x= y^2 in the first quadrant.

(I've worked out the x intercepts to be 0 and 1 in the first quadrant, but how would I find the area?)

thanks :)

  • Math- integration -

    Is your first function y = x^(2/3) ?
    then your intersection is indeed at x-0 and x=1

    in that domain x = y^2 or y = x^(1/2) is above y = x^(2/3)
    so the effective height is x^(1/2) - x^(2/3)

    area = ∫( x^(1/2) - x^(2/3) ) dx
    = (2/3)x^(3/2) - (3/5)x^(5/3) | from 0 to 1
    = (2/3 - 3/5 - 0)
    = 1/15
