How can you solve for these types of integrals? $\displaystyle \displaystyle \int x^{n}\cos(ax) \ dx \ or \displaystyle \int x^{n}\sin(ax) \ dx\\$ An example of an integral that I want to solve $\displaystyle \displaystyle \int x^{5}\cos(3x) \ dx$ Using u-substitution: $\displaystyle \displaystyle u = \cos(3x)\\ \displaystyle du = -3\sin(3x) \ dx\\$ Then going back to solve the integral $\displaystyle$\displaystyle \int x^{5}u \ du But how do I go on from here?

To integrate $\int x^5 \cos(x) dx$, let $u= x^5$ and $dv= \cos(x)dx$. Then $du= 5x^4 dx$ and $v= \sin(x)$. So the integral becomes $x^5\sin(x)- 5\int x^4 \sin(x) dx$. Now let $u= x^4$ and $dv= \sin(x)$. Then $du= 4x^3 dx$ and $v= -\cos(x)$. So the integral becomes $x^5\sin(x)+ 5x^4\cos(x)- 20\int x^3 \cos(x)dx$. Keep doing that until the power of $x$ is reduced to 0. Thanks from DecoratorFawn82 Last edited by skipjack; January 19th, 2018 at 04:25 AM.

But I think that you can simplify a lot of the computations if you instead compute $$\int x^n e^{iax}dx$$ Thanks from greg1313 January 19th, 2018, 06:30 AM #4 Global Moderator   Joined: Oct 2008 From: London, Ontario, Canada - The Forest City Posts: 7,958 Thanks: 1146 Math Focus: Elementary mathematics and beyond $$\cos(ax)=\frac{e^{iax}+e^{-aix}}{2}$$ Substitute, expand and use a single u-substitution to evaluate.

However, the other methods presented here are just fine as well.

I'm not seeing this at all (the substitution).

Repeated IBP is required to integrate the resulting logarithmic expression. Tags integrals, type, xncosax, xnsinax Search tags for this page
