    Strange antiderivative problem... how to proceed?

    If the function f is defined by sqrt(x^3+2) and if g is an antiderivative of f such that g(3)=5, then what is g?

    I'm not sure what method to integrate f. Trig sub? Integ by parts? Any help is appreciated.

    Hi

    Here is what Wolfram says about your antiderivative !

    It is not computable ...
