    You're left with \displaystyle 2 \int \dfrac{t^2}{\sqrt{1-t^4}}dt which doesn't seem doable using C4 techniques.
    I = ....
    Then try to find  I^{2}

    Review exercises are really helpful. Remember to consider everything in a question logically though. M1 is really intuitive

    By using  u^{2} = sin(x)
    Find,  \int{\sqrt{sin(x)}} dx

    I'll need to ask that nobody bothers answering GeologyMaths ridiculous questions. \int \sqrt{\sin x} \, \mathrm{d}x cannot expressed in terms of elementary fractions and it's fairly sad that he's trolling a maths forum, but that's not my problem.

    In any case, you can express the integral in terms of a Legendre integral and an elliptic integral (of the second incomplete kind):

    \displaystyle 

\begin{equation*}\int \sqrt{\sin x}\ \mathrm{d}x=\sqrt{\frac{2}{\pi}}  \Gamma \left(\frac{3}{4}\right)^2-2 \text{EllipticE}\left[\frac{1}{4} (\pi -2x),2\right],\quad 0\leq x \leq \pi \end{equation*}

    Really!? What's the strategy?
    1992 STEP I, Q1. Solution here. But other than that, there are plenty of algorithms and tricks to find the weekday of dates, a quick google/wikipedia look up should unearth them.

    It's why I bolded the A level part. You should invite him over to the hard problems threads.

    Lol. Wonder what you think of the likes of me then .

    Taking things back on topic, do you do specific A level prep anymore? I imagine STEP might suffice for at least some topics?

    Nothing like that, trolls irritate me!

    Uhm, I do the occasional FP2 past paper (they can be relaxing compared to STEP!) and I'm currently working through FP3 Vectors, so I'll be doing a few FP3 papers as well.

    Search up relative motion on youtube and watch a bunch of examples/lectures. That's what I did for my GCSE's, still pissed at how they put Rel Motion in my IGCSE, but it worked. :rofl:

    I think you need the vector product to work out moments of forces? Not sure though.

    De nada.
