can you integrate the last expression on your own? - Dec 30th 2012, 05:59 PMAhasuerosRe: Integral
substitute and

multiply integral by , so your integral becomes

using the u substitutions

note:

then using partial fractions

-> and

so and

your new integral becomes

you should be able to do the rest

Edit: skeeter's way is much faster (didn't see his post before posting this) - Dec 30th 2012, 10:17 PMsbhatnagarRe: Integral
You can substitute .
