Your two expressions are not equal. The integral of a constant is NOT just that constant; it's that constant multipled by the variable of integration evaluate at the limits of definite integral. If you multiply your constant that you pulled out, in the first expression, by pi/4, you'll get the same numerical answer.

BTW, you should be using the numerical processor, and not the symbolic processor for definite integrals with numerics limits.

TTFN,

The integration of F*r w.r.t theta is NOT F*r, it is F*r times theat evaluated at the integration endpoints. Forgot my calculus
