Integrals involving roots Let’s look at a couple of examples to see another technique that can be used on occasion to help with these integrals. Example 1 Evaluate the following integral. Solution Sometimes when faced with an integral that contains a root we can use the following substitution to simplify the integral into a form that can be easily worked with. So, instead of letting u be the stuff under the radical as we often did in Calculus I we let u be the whole radical. Now, there will be a little more work here since we will also need to know what x is so we can substitute in for that in the numerator and so we can compute the differential, dx. This is easy enough to get however. Just solve the substitution for x as follows, Using this substitution the integral is now, So, sometimes, when an integral contains the root the substitution, can be used to simplify the integral into a form that we can deal with. Let’s take a look at another example real quick. Example 2 Evaluate the following integral. Solution We’ll do the same thing we did in the previous example. Here’s the substitution and the extra work we’ll need to do to get x in terms of u. With this substitution the integral is, This integral can now be done with partial fractions. Setting numerators equal gives, Picking value of u gives the coefficients. The integral is then, So, we’ve seen a nice method to eliminate roots from the integral and put it into a form that we can deal with. Note however, that this won’t always work and sometimes the new integral will be just as difficult to do.
