Evaluate the integral of (sin 2x)/(1+cos^2 x)
1. u=cosx and du=sinx *dx
2. evaluate the integral of 1/(1+u^2)*du
3. result is ln(1+u^2)+C
Where did the sin2x dissapear too???

Steve
recall that sin2x = 2 sinx cosx
(sin2x)/(1+cos^2x) dx
= 2cosx/(1+cos^2x) sinx dx
= 2u/(1+u^2) du
let v = 1+u^2, so dv = 2u du
= dv/v

That's the same as the integral of sin^2 x dx. Use integration by parts. Let sin x = u and sin x dx = dv v = cos x du = cos x dx The integral is u v  integral of v du = sinx cosx + integral of cos^2 dx which can be rewritten integral …
