Unformatted text preview: The new expression inside the limit as R approaches π /2, is ln|sec(R) + tan(R)| + ln|cos(R)| - ( ln|1| + ln|1|). The value of ( ln|1| + ln|1|) = 0, so this part is not necessary for extra computation. Using the logarithm properties, the ln|sec(R) + tan(R)| + ln|cos(R)| can be rewritten as ln| sec(R) + tan(R) * cos(R)|, continuing to take the limit as R approaches π /2. Because the sec(x) = 1/cos(x), and because the definition of tan(x) = sin(x)/cos(x), the logarithmic expression can be simplified to ln|1+sin(R)| as the limit of R approaches infinity, by multiplying sec(R) and tan(R) to the cos(R). Finally, the limit as R approaches π /2, should be evaluated. This can easily be done if π /2 is substituted for R. This produces the expression ln|1 + sin( π /2)|. The sin( π /2) = 1, so the solution to the problem is ln|1 + 1| = ln|2|....
