Tim: NIntegrate[Sqrt[Tan[x]],{x,0,1}] yields 0.727298. If you want more precision, try NIntegrate[Sqrt[Tan[x]],{x,0,1}, WorkingPrecision->30] which yields 0.72729824934351064355.

How do I just get the approx. of this, say 5 decimal places? Mathematica gives an exact answer which is in terms of multiple fractions, roots, and complex numbers. According to my TI-85, it is approx. 0.7273 My email address is anti-spammed. Remove the 2 B's after hitting email reply if you want to email me.
