Uh I've posted a couple times before on improper integrals but this time I'm just going to ask all the questions and kind of scenarios that I have. If you can help me with these questions the other questions in my textbook will be easier because its pretty much the same from there.
1) x e^-x^2 dx between the interval of infinity and -infinity
For this question, I saw an example of it on pauls notes and well so I see that when dealing with interval between infinities means that you have to split the integral up, am i correct? Thats my question for this.
2) x+1/x^2+2x dx between infinity and 1
For this question how would I integrate this, I forgot how to integrate fractions well I know that say x/2x+3x I think would be integrated by first doing x/2x+x/3x am I right? But I'm not sure how how its done when it has two variables at the top and bottom.
3) S e^-5x ds between infinity and 0
For this question I've seen the answer for it and it tells me to use integration by parts. Why do I have to do integration by parts for this, isn't S just a variable aren't I able to keep the S out and just integrate the e^-5x and solve? How would I do this question or attempt it?
4) ln x/x dx between infinity and t
For this question I don't know how to approach it all.
5) x2/9+x^6 dx between infinity and -infinity
Lastly for this question since its between the infinities im guessing you have to split them up but again I'm not sure how since I don't know how to integrate fractions such as these.
Thanks in advance guys, I really need your help
Sorry if i'm being dumb but I need all the steps i can take for these questions :P
Since , we have an odd function.
What do you know about if is an odd function?
Now make the substitution .
3. If S is a constant, then you can take it out of the integral. If S is a variable, then you have a product of functions where a substitution is not appropriate, so integration by parts would be the way to go.
4. Try making the substitution .
5. If then .
Since we have an even function. What do you know about integrals of the form if is an even function?
You have been given plenty of help here. If you need more help, post according to the forum rules and also show all that you have done and say exactly where you are stuck.
