# PROBLEMS ON EVALUATING DEFINITE INTEGRALS

Evaluate the following definite integrals :

Problem 1 :

Solution :

1 = A(x-2) + B(x+2)

 Put x = 21 = B(2+2)1 = 4BB = 1/4 Put x = -21 = A(-2-2)1 = -4AA = -1/4

By applying the limits, we get

= (1/4) [ln(2/6) - ln(1/5)]

= (1/4) [ln (2/6) ⋅ (5/1)]

= (1/4) [ln (5/3)]

Problem 2 :

Solution :

By applying the limits, we get

= (1/2) [tan-1(2/2) - tan-1(0)]

= (1/2) [π/4 - 0]

π/8

Problem 3 :

Solution :

Let us apply trigonometric substitution.

x = cos2θ

(1-x)/(1+x) = (1-cos2θ)/(1+cos2θ)

= sin2θ/cos2θ

= tan2θ

dx = -2sin 2θ dθ

 If x = 02θ = cos-1x2θ = cos-102θ = π/2θ = π/4 If x = 12θ = cos-1x2θ = cos-112θ = 0θ = 0

By integrating

= 2[θ-sin2θ/2]

= 2(π/4 - sin2(π/4)/2)

π/2 - 1

Problem 4 :

Solution :

1+sinx :

sin 2x = 2tanx/(1+tan2x)

Dividing x by 2 on both sides, we get

sin x = 2tan(x/2)/(1+tan2(x/2))

1 + sinx = [1+tan2(x/2) + 2tan(x/2)] / (1+tan2(x/2))

1 + sinx = [1+tan2(x/2) + 2tan(x/2)] / (1+tan2(x/2))  ---(1)

cos 2x = (1-tan2x)/(1+tan2x)

Dividing x by 2 on both sides, we get

cos x = (1-tan2(x/2)/(1+tan2(x/2))

1 + cosx = 1 + [(1-tan2(x/2)/(1+tan2(x/2))]

= [(1+tan2(x/2) + (1-tan2(x/2)] / (1+tan2(x/2))

1 + cosx = 2/(1+tan2(x/2)) ----(2)

(1) / (2)

(1+sinx)/(1+cosx) = [1+tan2(x/2) + 2tan(x/2)]/2

Problem 5 :

Solution :

Let t = cos θ

dt = -sin θ dθ ==>  sin θ dθ = -dt

When θ = 0, t = cos 0 ==> 1

When θ = π/2, t = cos π/2 ==> 0

By applying the limit, we get

= (2/3) (1)3/2 - (2/7) (1)7/2 - 0

= (2/3) - (2/7)

= (14-6)/21

= 8/21

Problem 6 :

Solution :

By applying the limits, we get

= [sin 2(π/4)]/2

= 1/2
