Doing this in some detail, we have for the original integral in terms of
r...
eqn0 = r^2 == x^2 + y^2
Sqrt /@ %
Simplify[%, r > 0]
eqn1 = Reverse[%]
giving
r^2 == x^2 + y^2
Sqrt[r^2] == Sqrt[x^2 + y^2]
Sqrt[x^2 + y^2] == r
r == Sqrt[x^2 + y^2]
Now finding the r limits along your line.
eqn1 /. Thread[{x, y} -> {0, 0}]
eqn1 /. Thread[{x, y} -> {1, 1}]
giving
r == 0
r == Sqrt[2]
Integrate[r^2, {r, 0, Sqrt[2]}]
(2*Sqrt[2])/3
Converting into an integral with x and dx. We first solve for dr (== Dt[r])
eqn0
% /. y -> x
Dt[%]
drrule = Solve[%, Dt[r]][[1,1]]
giving
r^2 == x^2 + y^2
r^2 == 2*x^2
2 r Dt[r] == 4 x Dt[x]
Dt[r] -> (2*x*Dt[x])/r
Then calculating the new integral in terms of x and dx...
r^2Dt[r]
% /. drrule
% /. r -> Sqrt[x^2 + y^2]
% /. y -> x
Simplify[%, x > 0]
giving
r^2*Dt[r]
2*r*x*Dt[x]
2*x*Sqrt[x^2 + y^2]*Dt[x]
2*Sqrt[2]*x*Sqrt[x^2]*Dt[x]
2*Sqrt[2]*x^2*Dt[x]
We can then do the integral over x.
Integrate[2*Sqrt[2]*x^2, {x, 0, 1}]
(2*Sqrt[2])/3

Hello,
I have a question and was wondering if someone could help me with it. This
is a general vector calculus problem, not specific to Mathematica. I have a
simple integral as follows:
Given r^2= x^2+y^2, solve Integral[r^2, dr] from point1 (0,0) to point2
(1,1), which would be evaluated from r=0 to r=sqrt[2] and gives answer =
2*sqrt[2]/3.
The above is pretty simple, however, I am not sure how to formulate the
problem when I convert the 'dr' back to cartesian coordinates as follows:
Integrate [x^2+y^2, d????] and the limits??? WHat should 'dr' be in terms
of dx? if my integrand is directly x^2+y^2. It cannot be a double integral,
since the original problem was a single integral, but then how do you solve
this??
Can anyone help?
thanks!
