should i use substitution?? if yes how should should i use it? plz i need some directions?
k plz someone?...so far i used trig. substitution. i got a=8, so i used x=asin(è)so according to this substitution i got x=8sin(è) and dx=8cos(è) dè...then i used used the plug them in the original problem ...
so when i did that and simplfying it...i got 128sin^2(è)*8cos(è)/squarroot of 64256sin^2...then how do i intergrate that? i am doing my best... am i doing it correct?
Are you certain the x in the numerator is squared? If it is not, then this helps...
divide numerator and denominator by 1/2
then you have INT x^2/sqrt(16x^2)
Now, integrate it by parts, u= x^2, v= 1/sqrt(16x^2) You will get power function, and an arcsin function.
integrate (2x^2)/squarroot of (644x^2)
no IT IS squared...shouldnt i be using trignometric substitution?
Yes, use substitution.
Let u = x^2
du = 2 x dx
x = sqrt u
dx = (1/2)/u^(1/2) du
and you get
(Integral of)[ 2u/sqrt(64  2u)](1/2)/u^(1/2) du
= (Integral of) sqrt(u/(64  2u) du
Letting v = 64  2u will simplify that further.
If it is not squared, yes, use trig substitution.
so integration by parts would help? or can i still use trignometric substittion?
i did use it...i got to the point of 128sin^2*8cos(è) d(è)/616sin(è) ...how do i integrate this?
why would v=642u? becasue it is square root of 644x^2...so wouldnt v=82x? i am confused on that part...but plz so far i used trig. substitution...i got to the point 128sin^2è*8cosè dè /816sinè ? but i am not sure where to go after that in order to integrate it?...
anyone?
i got the answer to be 2sin^2(è)....is that correct? i used trig. substitution
