You can compute the first integral by using integration by parts.

Yes, that's correct, you can simplify it to:

and moreover:

Therefore you have proved the inequality. - Dec 15th 2011, 09:10 AMmaoroRe: proving integral inequalities

Then is the process the same for #2?

It's quite complicated when evaluating the definite integral - Dec 15th 2011, 09:33 AMSironRe: proving integral inequalities
No, It won't be the same, because indeed as you note they're very complex to evaluate and moreover you can't express in term of standard mathematical functions, similar for the second one.

I would do something with the fact that you can evaluate:
