Chapter 6: Applications of Double Integration
Section 6.4: Average Value
Find the average value of F=2 x2+3 y2 over R, the finite region bounded by the graphs of x=y2 and y=3−2 x. See Example 6.2.2 and Example 6.1.2.
The average value of F=2 x2+3 y2 over the region shown in Figure 6.1.2(a) is
∫−3/21∫y23−y/22⁢x2+3⁢y2ⅆxⅆy∫−3/21∫y23−y/21ⅆxⅆy = 16875/1792125/48 = 405112
The numerator is the volume computed in Example 6.2.2, while the denominator is the area computed in Example 6.1.2.
Maple Solution - Interactive
A solution from first principles entails simply formulating and evaluating the integrals for volume and area as found in Example 6.2.2 and Example 6.1.2, respectively.
