How to make Mathematica show me the steps of any calculation as example steps of a definite integral

Integrate[1/Sqrt[R^2 + (x1 - x2)^2], {x2, 0, l}, {x1, 0, l}]

In Wolfram Mathematica there is no such possibility yet.

1 Alternative use WolframAlpha only work with 1-dimensional integrals.(paid version)

2 Alternative use Maple only work with 1-dimensional integrals.(paid version)

3 only work with 1-dimensional integrals.(free version)

4 Or another Internet integral-calculators (They have limited possibilities).



Here is a related integral for which W|A will correctly interpret input and offer show-steps.


Changing x to x2 makes it go sideways though.

I used concrete values instead of R and l so as to avoid the need to argue with Alpha over whether it should take the Assumptions option of Integrate or otherwise infer ranges of viable values for those parameters.
