I'm trying to integrate this function using integration by parts, but I get stuck after a while.

The function is

I start by using the formula

So taking , then

Now what do I do?

No need for integration by parts, use trigonometric identities.

The question states to use integration by parts, I assume there would be a way?

You may need to integrate by parts twice here.

and

Now

What do you get? - August 20th 2010, 04:19 AMHallsofIvy

I end up with 0? I don't think I'm doing it right. This is what I do:

But then all together that means:

What am I doing wrong here? My CAS calculator says the answer should be

Solving this one with integration by parts is a time's wasting.

Use this:

Ok, it's a video, but my link is to a .wmv file and I need to do it differently, clearly. Will fix. (Edit: fixed, but you have to follow the link to see the video - was hoping it would project right here!)

Anyway, just in case a picture helps...

If you MUST use integration by parts, then rewrite your integral as

Now apply integration by parts with so and so .

The integral becomes

So this gives

.

Apply integration by parts once more, then you will have your answer. - August 23rd 2010, 03:45 AMtom@ballooncalculus

Thanks for all the help. I should have no trouble solving it using the methods described above.

Hello, exothesis!

The formula I use has this form: .
