# Thread: integrate this tough one

1. ## integrate this tough one

1/(x^3+1)^(1/2)

It seems like a non elementary function. Result comes out to be arcsin something?

2. Dear Taurus3,

This integration cannot be expressed in elementary functions. Wolfram Mathematica Online Integratordc

3. but can you use partial fractions to solve for it? If so, how?

4. you can't use partial fractions and you just were told that the integral can't be solved in terms of elemetary functions.
