Hi,

I would like to determine how to calculate the area in the attached.

You can see there are two area columns one is for righting and one is for heeling.

I've tried using Simpson but I can't seem to reverse engineer the formula of the area.

Please see attached file for your reference.

I have attached as well the graph. I would like to determine the formula for the area.

Thank you in advance,

What was your result? I assume you didn't use Simpson properly, I got a difference of ~0.08 % and if proper done you also should get reasonable results.

f(x)*dx ~ h/3*[f(x0)+4f(x1)+2f(x2)+...+4f(xn-1)+f(xn)]
