Section 8.3: Trigonometric Substitution Please refer to handout for review material. Example. Evaluate x 2 9 - x 2 dx . Solution. Since the radical contains a 2 - x 2 , let x = 3sin θ , - π 2 ≤θ≤ 2 dx = 3cos d x 2 = 9sin 2 9 - x 2 = 9 - 9sin 2 = 91 - sin 2 ( 29 = 9cos 2 = 3cos Therefore, x 2 9 - x 2 dx = 9sin 2 3cos 3cos d = 9 sin 2 d = 9 1 2 1 - cos2 ( 29 d = 9 2 d θ- 9 2 cos2 d = 9 2 9 2 1 2 sin2 + c And s in2 θ= 2s in cos = 9 2 9 2 1 2 2sin cos + c = 9 2 9 2 sin cos + c Now , sin and cos need to be expressed in terms of the original variable x . Since x = 3sin , sin x 3 = opposite hypotenuse and = sin - 1 x 3 Drawing a triangle and labeling the sides, We can determine cos = adjacent hypotenuse , or cos 9 - x 2 3 Finally,
