with x=1/t it becomes of the form $\int u^a u' f$

don't take into account posts 11 and 12. with the substitution $x=\frac{1}{t}$, your integral becomes of the form $\int u^a u'$ Last edited by abdallahhammam; September 17th, 2016 at 07:15 AM.

$\displaystyle \int(x^2+1)^{3/2}\,dx=\int\frac{1}{(x^2+1)\sqrt{x^2+1}}\,dx= \int\frac{x} {x(x^2+1)\sqrt{x^2+1}}\,dx$ $$u=\frac{x}{\sqrt{x^2+1}},\quad du=(x^2+1)^{3/2}\,dx$$ ... etc ...

I like the $\frac1t$ idea although it essentially becomes the single substitution that I used. The one I came up with was $$\begin{aligned} \int \left(1+x^2\right)^{\frac32} \,\mathrm dx &= \int {1 \over \left(\sqrt{1+x^2}\right)^3} \,\mathrm dx \\ &= \int {1 \over \left(\sqrt{x^2\left(\frac1{x^2}+1\right)}\right)^ 3} \,\mathrm dx \\ &= \int {1 \over \left(x\sqrt{\frac1{x^2}+1}\right)^3} \,\mathrm dx \\ &= \int {1 \over x^3\left(\sqrt{\frac1{x^2}+1}\right)^3} \,\mathrm dx \\ &= \int x^{3}\left(\tfrac1{x^2}+1\right)^{\frac32} \,\mathrm dx \\ \end{aligned}$$ And then $u = 1 + x^{2}$.
