Evaluate the definite integral\[\int\limits_2^3\frac{1}{x}dx\]

1 Answer

Toolbox:
  • (i)$\int\limits_a^b f(x)dx= F(b)-F(a)$
  • (ii)$\int \frac{1}{x}dx=log x$
Given $I=\int \limits_2^3 \large\frac{1}{x}dx$
 
On integrating we get,
 
[log x]
 
On applying limits we get,
 
$ I= log3-log2$
 
But we know $log a-log b=log|a/b|,$ similarly
 
$ I=log 3/2$
