How to take an integral symbolically and then convert it to type double?

1 view (last 30 days)
How do I take the following integral symbolically? And convert it to double? I have a 1000 x 1 numeric vector of type double for A(t).
The following takes a minute or two to run and I'm not sure how to plot it to check.

Thank you. I think the symbolic aspect is confusing me, so I am trying to do it in a more straightforward numerical approach.

syms t omega real
A = rand(1000,1);
% specify the integration variable t as the argument
I = double(vpa(int(A.*sin(omega*t),t,0,2*pi/omega),2))
I = 1000×1

Assuming some random data, you can specify the integration variable t as the argument and do symbolic integration
