Example Question #11 : Definite Integrals

Evaluate the definite integral

Possible Answers:

Correct answer:

Explanation:

Because integration is a linear operation, we are able to anti-differentiate the function term by term.

We use the properties that

  • The anti-derivative of    is  
  • The anti-derivative of    is     

to solve the definite integral

And by the corollary of the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus

Example Question #372 : Integrals

Evaluate the definite integral

Possible Answers:

DNE

Correct answer:

Explanation:

We use the property that

  • The antii-derivative of    is   

to solve the definite integral

And by the corollary of the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus

And since  

the definite integral becomes

Example Question #381 : Integrals

Evaluate the following definite integral:

 

Possible Answers:

Correct answer:

Explanation:

 is an integral of a rational function, so we need to make the denominator into one of the basic rational functions we know the antiderivatives of and then split it up into multiple parts if necessary.

The most obvious thing to do then, is to substitute :

So our new integral is:

which can then be split up into two pieces:

both of these are simple:

And that's the final answer.

Example Question #12 : Definite Integrals

Evaluate .

Possible Answers:

None of the other answers

Correct answer:

None of the other answers

Explanation:

The correct answer is .

 

Instead of evaluating the integral directly using antiderivatives, it is much eaiser to notice that the bounds of integration are negatives of each other, and that  is an odd function

(in other words,)

 

Hence

 

 

. Since  is odd.

Example Question #383 : Integrals

Evaluate 

Possible Answers:

None of the other answers

Correct answer:

Explanation:

We use integration by parts for this integral.

Let , and , then taking the derivative of  and the antiderivative of , we get , and .

Using the integration by parts formula, , we have

. Start

 

. Use the integration formula. (do not evaluate the left part yet).

. Evaluate the last integral, and begin to evaluate the entire expression for the antiderivative.

 

. Evaluate

. Use rules of logs

. Simplify
