Worksheet: Area Enclosed by Parametric Curves

In this worksheet, we will practice using integration to find the area under a curve defined by parametric functions.

Q1:

Consider the curve defined by the parametric equations 𝑥=2𝑡cos and 𝑦=3𝑡sin.

Find 6𝑡𝑡sind.

  • A 3 𝑡 + 3 2 2 𝑡 + 𝑐 s i n
  • B 3 𝑡 + 1 2 2 𝑡 + 𝑐 s i n
  • C 3 𝑡 3 2 2 𝑡 + 𝑐 s i n
  • D 6 𝑡 + 3 2 2 𝑡 + 𝑐 s i n
  • E 3 𝑡 + 3 2 2 𝑡 + 𝑐 s i n

Find the area under the curve when 0𝑡𝜋.

  • A 𝜋
  • B 2 𝜋
  • C 3 𝜋
  • D 𝜋 3
  • E 6 𝜋

Now, by taking 0𝑡2𝜋, find the total area inside the curve.

  • A 6 𝜋
  • B 2 𝜋
  • C 3 𝜋
  • D 𝜋 3
  • E 𝜋

Q2:

Consider the curve defined by the parametric equations 𝑥=𝑝 and 𝑦=4𝑝.

Find the area under the curve where 0𝑝1.

Find the area under the curve where 0𝑝2.
