Integral with substitution and parts

∫ sin(2t)*e^[cos(t)] dt (from t=0 to π)

My work:

trig identity: sin2t= 2sintcost

bring constant to the outside

=> 2 ∫ sin(t)cos(t)*e^[cos(t)] dt (from t=0 to π)

I did u substitution and did

u=cos(t)

du=-sin(t)dt

new intervals:

cos(pi)=-1

cos(0)=1

Im not sure what to after this. Do I divide du=-sint(dt) by negative 1 and bring that -1 to the outside of integral since there is only a sin(t)dt not -sin(t)dt?

I appreciate any help!

Re: Integral with substitution and parts

Ok I figured out what to do, but this last algebra is bugging me.

= 2 * [(e - e) - (-1/e - 1/e)]

= 4/e

does it simplify to 0 (+2/e +2/e)

which equals 4/e?

Hello, Steelers72!

I couldn't follow what you did, but you got the right answer.

I'll drop the limits for now . . .

We have: .

Thanks for the help! Just one question:

When you took the integral of e^cost (-sintdt) , why did the -sint get eliminated? The antiderivative of -sin is cos right? I'm confused at that part

Re: Integral with substitution and parts

Alternatively making a substitution can make the integral simple.

let cos t = u

-sint dt = du

thus we will get
