Just need to know a few things mate.
1) Is this the equation?
2) Are a and b both constants?
! = integrate
I am trying to integrate the following:
! x/sqr(a^2-b^2*x^2) dx
Using partial fractions I get the following:
1/sqr(2b) ! sqr(x)/sqr(a+bx) dx - 1/sqr(2b) ! sqr(x)/sqr(a-bx) dx.
This doesn't seem to help at all so it has obviously come off the rails. Could someone be so kind as to show the correct workings?
Yeah, those buggers can really make life more tedious. I mean, at first it's kinda handy because if, in my experience, if you see a big square root in the denominator then you'll probably have to use substitution... but once you're over the joy of knowing which technique to use, you realise the extra work you gotta do to find the answer. :P
Good luck with you other integrals. ^_^
