Trigonometric Rules of Integrals

  • Memorize!
  • Careful not to confuse with trig derivative rules
  • Useful especially during multiple choice portion of AP exam

Trigonometric Rules of Integrals

∫sin5x dx
  • ∫sin5x dx = −cos5x ([1/5]) + c
∫sin5x dx = −[1/5] cos5x + c
∫cos[x/3] dx
  • ∫cos[x/3] dx = sin[x/3] [1/([1/3])] + c
∫cos[x/3] dx = 3 sin[x/3] + c
∫sec2 x dx
∫sec2 x dx = tanx + c
∫sec3x tan3x dx
  • ∫sec3x tan3x dx = sec3x [1/3] + c
∫sec3x tan3x dx = [1/3] sec3x + c
∫sec2 x + sec3x tan3x dx
  • ∫sec2 x + sec3x tan3x dx = ∫sec2 x dx + ∫sec3x tan3x dx
  • ∫sec2 x + sec3x tan3x dx = tanx + sec3x [1/3] + c
∫sec2 x + sec3x tan3x dx = tanx + [1/3] sec3x + c
∫csc2 [x/2] dx
  • This is close to the derivative of cot[x/2], but not quite.
  • ∫csc2 [x/2] dx = (−1)(−1)∫csc2 [x/2] dx
  • ∫csc2 [x/2] dx = − ∫− csc2 [x/2] dx
  • ∫csc2 [x/2] dx = −(cot[x/2]) [1/([1/2])] + c
∫csc2 [x/2] dx = −2cot[x/2] + c
−∫cscx cotx dx
  • −∫cscx cotx dx = ∫− cscx cotx dx
−∫cscx cotx dx = cscx + c
∫3 sin[x/3] dx
  • ∫3 sin[x/3] dx = 3 ∫sin[x/3] dx
  • ∫3 sin[x/3] dx = 3 (−cos[x/3] [1/([1/3])]) + c
∫3 sin[x/3] dx = − 9 cos[x/3] + c
∫sin2x − cos3x dx
  • ∫sin2x − cos3x dx = ∫sin2x dx − ∫cos3x dx
∫sin2x − cos3x dx = [1/2] sin2x − [1/3] cos3x + c
∫secx tanx − cscx cotx dx
  • ∫secx tanx − cscx cotx dx = ∫secx tanx dx − ∫cscx cotx dx
  • ∫secx tanx − cscx cotx dx = ∫secx tanx dx + ∫− cscx cotx dx
∫secx tanx − cscx cotx dx = secx + cscx + c

*These practice questions are only helpful when you work on them offline on a piece of paper and then use the solution steps function to check your answer.
