OT: Random Math Question
im wondering if anyone knows this. I've come across a potential factor of input function I would like to use in my paper, but I forgot my freshman calculus.
anyone know how to integrate (1 + cosx)^(1/2) and ( 1  cosx)^(1/2) any help will be appreciated. 
my high school precal is worthless for this stuff...
Im taking calculas senior year (next yr) maybe I can get back to you then? Usually, the trick is to just cancel everything out OR claim it is undefined. lol 
You need a special formulae for that, they have tables or something for them. Those are improper integrals I believe.

Quote:
That formula turns into (1/2)(U)^(1/2) U=1+cos then the 1+cos turns into sin. (1/2)(sin)^(1/2) easy!:rockon:

Why do u need to learn this sh*it?

what is integrating?

Opposite of differentiating.

re:
nvm I figured it out. i had to use the tan(x/2) substitution.

yeah I know, I'm just being an ass. I had a prof once that got all upset about people using opposite and inverse interchangeably, so I just thought of him when you said opposite

Basketball and math go together like tacos and chinese people.

Stupid salesman, nobody expects you to know a thing about math. You got a $400,000 home and a Cadillac with $40,000 a year. Simple arithmetic would have helped you evade such horrible lies.
