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.
