Problem 47 Hard Difficulty

(a) If $ g(x) = \frac{(\sin^2 x)}{x^2} $, use your calculator or computer to make a table of approximate values of $ \displaystyle \int_1^t g(x)\ dx $ for $ t = 2, 5, 10, 100, 1000 $, and $ 10,000 $. Does it appear that $ \displaystyle \int_1^\infty g(x)\ dx $ is convergent?
(b) Use the Comparison Theorem with $ f(x) = \frac{1}{x^2} $ to show that $ \displaystyle \int_1^\infty g(x)\ dx $ is convergent.
(c) Illustrate part (b) by graphing $ f $ and $ g $ on the same screen for $ 1 \le x \le 10 $. Use your graph to explain intuitively why $ \displaystyle \int_1^\infty g(x)\ dx $ is convergent.


a. $g(x)=\frac{\sin ^{2} x}{x^{2}}$
b. $\int_{1}^{\infty} \frac{\sin ^{2} x}{x^{2}} d x$ is convergent
c. convergent

for a. The problem is use your calculated our computer to Michael. Table off approximate wallows off integral from one two t jl box T X t issue Go to two five and one hundred for saland and ten seven. Does it appear that and a girl off one to infinity Xerox as compartment by computation when he is ico toe too far Turn The handwriting was selling them and seldom Auntie Girl off jail. Blacks from one two t is equal to there a point full for seven hours. There a point five seven seven one there a point six two one three point six six eight three zero point six seven three year old on DH zero point six seven three four It appears that Auntie girl off gearbox from one to Infinity Axe as merchant, since we can see the value as worry where it's more, Alba is smaller than one B. It was a comparison theory, um, with a fax it coach one over X Square to show that this improper, integral as burdened a party me now integral off Jill Box one to infinity The box is he cultures integral from wanting unity. Sign X squared over. Explain, Jax, but we know Sign X Square as always, smaller than one. So this is smaller, integral from one to infinity. One over x Square E X But we know this improper integral is convergent. So by comparison, Miriam the improper integral of Jill Lax from Want Infinity It's convergent Potsie. Look at the graph here. The writer curve is the Kif of one over X Square. On it's a blue curve is jewel box. We can see Blue Cliff is always and, uh, by the one, and we know it's anti girl. From what? From one to infinity, it'sjust area Ondas a curve on DH X axis. So Auntie girl off the gearbox is small isa into your off a phone box and they use York graft to explain intuitively why the improper into girl off to blacks is convergent this way. Now Integra off Jill blacks from one to infinity is the area, and there's a cure. If a blue one Andi X axis we can see when she won axe is richer than spot six. Jim Wax as almost zero so we can guys area is find that it's not infinite
