Set up iterated integrals for both orders of integration. Then evaluate the double integral using the easier order and explain why it’s easier.15. ∬ D y   d A , D is bounded by y = x − 2,.x = y2

To determine

To setup: The iterated integrals for both the orders of integration and then evaluate the double integral by easier method.

Explanation

Given:

The function is f(x,y)=y .

The region D is bounded by the curves x=y2,y=x2 .

Definition used:

Region of type 1:

A plane region D is said to be of type 1 if it lies between two continuous functions of x.

That is, D={(x,y)|axb,g1(x)yg2(x)} , where g1(x) and g2(x) are the continuous functions of x.

Region of type 2:

A plane region D is said to be of type 2 if it lies between two continuous functions of y.

That is, D={(x,y)|ayb,h1(y)xh2(y)} , where h1(y) and h2(y) are the continuous functions of y.

If the region D is of type 1, then the region that has to be evaluated is given below in the Figure 1.

Therefore, from Figure 1, it is observed that when x varies from 0 to 1, y varies from x to x and when x varies from 1 to 4, y varies from x − 2 to x .

Similarly, if the region D is of type 2, then the region that has to be evaluated is given below in the Figure 2.

Therefore, from Figure 2, it is observed that x varies from y2 to y + 2and y varies from −1to 2.

So, if the region D is of type 1, then the two double integral values has to be evaluated, but if the region D is of type 2, then it is enough to evaluate only one double integral value. This is the easier method.

So, the value of double integral is obtained as follows
