Unformatted text preview: I: % dx = ln(——(—2)) ——1n(—(—4)) : 1n(2) —1n(4). The other way to approach this problem is to simply use the indefinite integral J‘%dx =1n(|x|)+ C. Using this formula, we obtain 72 L idx = ln(|—2|) — 11’1(|—4i) = 111(2) — 111(4). x Some Basic Integrals The following indefinite integrals (which come from basic differentiation formulas from differential calculus) should be memorized. You will need to know them as we study integration techniques that will allow us to compute “less basic” integrals such as [Webs 1. lfK is any constant, then Ide = Kx + C. 2. If n is any constant except n = —1, then ix" dx = fix’m + C. 3. Babe =1n(|x|)+ C. 4. If a is any positive constant except a = 1, then [ax dx = 1 at + C. 5 1n(a) . A special case of formula 4 (the nicest case) is when we use base 6. In this case the formula is x = 1 x Jedx 1n(e)t2+C or simply Iexdx = ex + C. 6. _i cos(x)dx = sin(x) + C. 7. .iSin(x) dx = —cos(x) + C. 8. l sec2(x)dx = tan(x) + C. 9. jesc2(x)dx = -cot(x) + C. 10. l sec(x)tan(x)dx = sec(x) + C. 11.

Since these two are usually the least familiar to students who have completed a differential calculus course, we will give a derivation of formula number 13. (The derivation of formula 12 is left as a homework exercise.) First, we recall the definition of the inverse tangent function, which we denote by “arctan”. (Another notation for the inverse tangent function is “tan—1”.) The statement 16 ...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
