    Question Can't evaluate this integral

    \int_0^{\pi}e^{cost}sin(2t)dt

    Work I have:
    Let u = e^{cost}

     du=(-e^{cost}sint)dt

    But I don't know what to do from here since it is a sin(2t) in the original integral.

    Thanks in advance!

    sin(2t) = 2sin(t)cos(t)

    do a substitution, u = cos(t), finish off with integration by parts

    \sin(2t) =2\sin(t)\cos(t) then

    2\int \sin(t)\cos(t)e^{\cos(t)}dt

    Set u=\cos(t) \implies du =-\sin(t)dt to get

    -2 \int ue^{u}du Now use integration by parts

    edit too slow

    \sin{2t} = 2\sin{t}\cos{t}.


    So \int{e^{\cos{t}}\sin{2t}\,dt} = \int{2\sin{t}\cos{t}\,e^{\cos{t}}\,dt}

     = -2\int{-\sin{t}\,e^{\cos{t}}\cdot \cos{t}\,dt}.


    Now use integration by parts...

    u = \cos{t} so du = -\sin{t}

    dv = -\sin{t}\,e^{\cos{t}} so v = e^{\cos{t}}.


    So -2\int{-\sin{t}\,e^{\cos{t}}\cdot \cos{t}\,dt} = -2\left[\cos{t}\,e^{\cos{t}} - \int{-\sin{t}\,e^{\cos{t}}\,dt}\right]

     = -2\left[\cos{t}\,e^{\cos{t}} - e^{\cos{t}}\right] + C

     = 2e^{\cos{t}} - 2\cos{t}\,e^{\cos{t}} + C.

    sin(2t) = 2sin(t)cos(t)

    and sin(t) = u, cos(t)dt = du

    so your equation now is:

    \int_0^{\pi}-e^{u}udu

    take the negative sign out of the integrand, and solve the integral using integration by parts:

    u = u, du = du, dv = e^{u}, v = e^{u}



    can you do it now?

    Thanks in advance!

    \int\limits_0^\pi e^{\cos t}\sin 2t\,dt=  2\int\limits_0^\pi e^{\cos t}\sin t\cos t\,dt= (integration by parts) 2\left(\left[-\cos t\, e^{\cos t}\right]_0^\pi+\int\limits_0^\pi e^{\cos t}\sin t\,dt\right) .

    I think the answer is 4e
