1) Integral of the inverse of sinx from 0 to 1/2 2) Integral of (sinx)^3 * (cosx)^2 1) Is there an identity I should be looking for when dealing with inverse sine? 2) Should I be using integration by parts in this?

1) Integration by parts 2) Put

Apply integration by parts, so & I assume you know integration by parts formula, this yields For the remaining integral, let's set Therefore Then we happily can say that , yielding red_dog's answer
