Can't get integration right - Marcio - 05-31-2016 12:16 PM
Hello all, Would you be king enough as to point out what I am doing wrong with this very simple integration? \[t = \int_0^{0.515}\frac{1}{0.000273\times exp\left[16306\times\left(\frac{1}{535}-\frac{1}{535+90.45x}\right)\right](1-x)} dx\] The correct answer is \(833\) but I keep getting \(838.867\pm2.38E-7\) with FIX 9. This is the code I am using on the 15C: R0 = 0.000273 R1 = 16306 R2 = 535 R3 = 90.45 Code: `LBL 0` Very much appreciated. RE: Can't get integration right - Werner - 05-31-2016 12:36 PM
You're not doing anything wrong, as that is the correct answer for the problem as stated. Perhaps a digit is wrong somewhere in the constants? Werner RE: Can't get integration right - Marcio - 05-31-2016 01:39 PM
That is right. Just found out 833 was a "close" approximation and 838.87 is actually the correct answer. Thank you. |
