The surface of a certain materials is given by A= ∫(p to q) y dx where y is given as (9 - x2) e(-x/3) and the limits of x is from -3 to +3.

Write a program to numerically integrate A to find out how many square centimeters is the surface area for the given limits. Also display the exact results computed using the indefinite integral e(-x/3) (3x2 + 18x + 27). Using trapezoidal rule.

urgent!!

Wow, urgent.

You might get a better response if you post your question in the C/C++ forum.

Also, you'll want to include any relevant source code for your project, as well as any errors, so we can better assist you with your question.

float yy;
yy = (9-k*k)*exp(-k/3);
return yy;
}

-program code must contains function, loop,array/file processing
my program dont have array/file processing..can u guys plz modify my program...thnx 4 your help...
