## How to get the decision of integral in a symbolic form?

Mathematica gives an answer for indefinite integral. I got expression in the second line after the expansion of the limits. But I can`t plot with this expression. The plot appears for expression in the third line. Is it possible to get the decision of this integral any other way? Thank you.

## Re: How to get the decision of integral in a symbolic form?

According to Mathcad's numerical calculations the three expressions you have listed are all different! See attached.

You have three unspecified variables. Which do you want to plot against?

Why do you need a symbolic result if you just want plots - you could plot using numerics.

Thank for your answer. I need decision of integral in first line. A,b,c are constant and independent from variable x. I need plot result of this integral. So I can get result in simbolic form.

## Re: How to get the decision of integral in a symbolic form?

The integral in your file goes from 0 to infinity, so it has a single value. Do you mean the upper limit to be some finite value, x, and you want to plot the value of the integral as a function of this upper limit?

The primitive which iwill be got as a result of integration will be plotted from variable t which is included in c.

## Re: How to get the decision of integral in a symbolic form?

Then make c a function of t and simply plot the numerical result of the integral against t. If you post the values of a and b and the functional relationship between c and t, with the range of t-values of interest, I'll see if I can plot it.

Here is an example using arbitrary values

a=8.5*10^11, b=8*10^8, c=0.4-8*10^5*t. Range t is like this: -5*10^-9...+10^-6.

How does Mathematica give the primitive of this integral in symbolic form?

You mean Mathcad, and it doesn't! Numerical results below:

## Re: How to get the decision of integral in a symbolic form?

I`d like c(t) to have discrete time as it is shown in the attached file. Which changes is it necessary to make?

## Re: How to get the decision of integral in a symbolic form?

There aren't any discrete times listed in this file! What are the times of interest?
