    Don't worry if you haven't and others have, there's still plenty of time until the exam! Loads of cramming to do
    Best of luck!!!

    Thank you 😄 you just made me feel better

    What are you stuck on? the limits becomes 0 \, and \frac{\pi}{3} your \frac{\mathrm{d}x}{\mathrm{d}u} = \cos \theta so your integral is transformed into:

    \displaystyle 

\begin{equation*}\int_0^{\pi/3} \frac{\cos \theta}{2\sqrt{1-\sin^2 \theta}} \, \mathrm{d}\theta\end{equation*}

    Now just use the fact that \sqrt{1-\sin^2 \theta} = \sqrt{\cos^2 \theta} = \cdots

    Aye, sorry I mis-read that as \frac{1}{2} because I'm blind. We have that (1-\sin^2 \theta)^{3/2} = \sqrt{1-\sin^2 \theta}(1- \sin^2 \theta) by indices laws, so your integrand is:

    \displaystyle \frac{\cos \theta}{2\sqrt{1-\sin^2 \theta}(1-\sin^2 \theta)} = \frac{\cos \theta}{2\cos \theta \cos^2 \theta}

    Pretty much all I'm doing, just loads and loads of past papers and exam questions, the solomon papers are great for the tougher questions if you're aiming for A/A* !

    Good luck!

    Have you seperated the variables?
    Put the functions of t on one side(right side preferably) and N on Left side.
