In 6bii? Okay so ive shown the equation they have gave ,what do i do next?
2. Integrate it. Put the cos(theta) into the dx and integrate with respect to sin(x) giving you sin(x) to the power of 5 divided by 5. Put in limits and multiply by 6pi

It's a common c4 integral really. Use udv dv du or whatever it was. If you're doing FP3 you may be asked to use a substitution of your choice. That was popular in older papers but the newer ones (Edexcel at least) don't do it as much.

5. Messy but oh well. That's how I would have done it.

So you just integrated the cosx seperately? Its fine , its not messy haha

Basically for this integral you are considering the derivatice of . This person basically made a substitution of . For these types of integrals it's really helpful if you can learn to recognise them. As well as the intergals of and .
