Vectors

In order for a large ramp to be moved, the mass must first be determined. The length of the ramp is two metres, as shown in the figurebelow.

\text { The curve of the ramp is given by } y=x^{3} \text {. }

\text { The ramp was cut from a material which has a density } \rho(x, y)=6 x y^{2}+4 x\left(\mathrm{~kg} / \mathrm{m}^{2}\right)

Determine the limits of integration for vertical slices.

Calculate the total mass of the ramp.
