To find the area of the loop of the curve ( r = a \sin^3(\theta) ), where ( r ) represents the distance from the origin to a point on the curve and ( \theta ) is the angle with the positive x-axis, you can use the formula for finding the area enclosed by a polar curve:

[ A = \frac{1}{2} \int_{\alpha}^{\beta} [f(\theta)]^2 d\theta ]

Where ( f(\theta) ) is the function representing the polar curve, and ( \alpha ) and ( \beta ) are the angles that define the loop. In this case, since we're dealing with a loop, ( \alpha ) and ( \beta ) would correspond to the values of ( \theta ) that define one complete loop around the origin.

First, we need to find the limits of integration, which correspond to the angles that define one complete loop around the origin. Since ( \sin(\theta) ) repeats every ( 2\pi ) radians, we can start from ( \theta = 0 ) and find the first positive ( \theta ) where ( r = 0 ), which is ( \pi ), then go to the next positive ( \theta ) where ( r = 0 ), which is ( 2\pi ). Therefore, the limits of integration are ( \alpha = 0 ) and ( \beta = 2\pi ).

Now, we can plug in ( r = a \sin^3(\theta) ) into the formula for the area:

[ A = \frac{1}{2} \int_{0}^{2\pi} [a \sin^3(\theta)]^2 d\theta ]

[ = \frac{1}{2} \int_{0}^{2\pi} a^2 \sin^6(\theta) d\theta ]

[ = \frac{a^2}{2} \int_{0}^{2\pi} \sin^6(\theta) d\theta ]

[ = \frac{a^2}{2} \left[ \frac{5}{16}\theta - \frac{1}{2}\sin(2\theta) + \frac{1}{24}\sin(4\theta) - \frac{1}{80}\sin(6\theta) \right]_{0}^{2\pi} ]

[ = \frac{5}{16}a^2\pi ]

So, the area of the loop of the curve ( r = a \sin^3(\theta) ) is ( \frac{5}{16}a^2\pi ).

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
