Say that integrate from 0 to a of f(t)dt = a^3. Evaluate integrate from 0 to pi/2 of f(cos(x))sin(x)dx

If the integral evaluates to the upper limit cubed,

we must have been integrating 3x².

To evaluate ∫f(cos(x))sin(x)dx given the f(x) = 3x², we get ∫3cos²(x)sin(x)dx.

Letting u(x) = cos(x) gives du = - sin(x)dx.

This means the problem is -∫3u²du which is = -u³.

To solve, put back in u(x) = cos(x) for u to get F(x), giving F(x) = -cos³(x).

Once this has been done, the answer would be F(π/2) - F(0).

Since it is known that cos(π/2) = 0 and cos(0) = 1, we have 0³ - 1³ = 0 - 1 = -1.

Answers by Expert:

Any kind of calculus question you want. I also have answered some questions in Physics (mass, momentum, falling bodies), Chemistry (charge, reactions, symbols, molecules), and Biology (reproduction, insusion of chemicals into bloodstream).

Experience in the area: I have tutored students in all areas of mathematics since 1980.
Education/Credentials: BSand MS in Mathematics from Oregon State University, where I completed sophomore course in Physics and Chemistry. I received both degrees with high honors.
Awards and Honors: I have passed Actuarial tests 100, 110, and 135.
**Publications**

Maybe not a publication, but I have respond to well oveer 8,500 questions on the PC.
Well over 2,000 of them have been in calculus.
**Education/Credentials**

I aquired well over 40 hours of upper division courses. This was well over the number that were required.
I graduated with honors in both my BS and MS degree from Oregon State University.
I was allowed to jump into a few courses at college a year early.
**Awards and Honors**

I have been nominated as the expert of the month several times.
All of my scores right now are at least a 9.8 average (out of 10).
**Past/Present Clients**

My past clients have been students at OSU, students at the college in South Seattle, referals from a company, friends and aquantenances, people from my church, and people like you from all over the world.
