1. ## Integration

How do you evaluate integral(x^1/2)sinx dx ?

2. You can use the Taylor expansion of $\displaystyle \sin x$ around $\displaystyle x=0$, then multiply each term of the series by $\displaystyle x^{\frac{1}{2}}$ and finally integrate term by term...

Kind regards

An exact answer cannot be found using a finite number of elementary functions. Where has this integral come from? Is an exact answer required?
