Integration by Parts

integral from 0 to 2pi of isin(t)e^(it)dt. I know my answer should be -pi.
**I pull i out because it is a constant.
My work:
let u=e^(it) du=ie^(it)dt dv=sin(t) v=-cos(t)
i integral sin(t)e^(it)dt= -e^(it)cos(t)+i*integral cost(t)e^(it)dt

do integration by parts again, then I get
=-e^(it)cos(t)+i[e^(it)sin(t)-i*integral e^(it)sin(t)dt.
then i add i*integral e^(it)sin(t)dt to both sides
2i*integral e^(it)sin(t)dt= -e^(it)(cos(t)-i(sin(t)))
divide by 2 and because e^(-it)=cos(t)-isin(t)

i*integral e^(it)sin(t)dt=-1/2

So my question is how do I get -pi from this? I have not plugged in 0 to 2pi interval and I should have -t/2 as a function to plug the interval in.

  1. since sin(t) = (e^-t - e^-it)/2,
    isin(t) = i/2 (e^it - e^-it)
    i sint e^it = i/2 (e^2it - 1)

    so, the integral is just

    i/2 ((1/2i) e^2it - t)
    = -1/4 e^2it - t/2
    do that from 0 to 2π and you have
    [1/4 e^4πi - π]-[1/4]
    = 1/4 - π - 1/4
    = -π

    I haven't checked your integration by parts, but I get

    -t/2 + 1/4 (sin 2t - i cos 2t)

    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
