There is a solution given here that uses complex numbers but gives a simple real answer which is correct:

You might be able to get the same answer using integration by parts

The answer is

(x/2) - (1/4)sin(2x)

I don't see any easier way to get it than the "Euler" proof in the link I gave you

thank you for your answer, but this example problem is not the same as mine. the example problem is (sin (x))^2, in other words the whole quantity is squared. mine is just sin of x^2. any suggestions here?
