Did you try plugging it into symbolab?

Consider the complex valued function and integrate around a semi-circle of radius centered at the origin in the lower half of the complex plane (denoted as ).

Then consider the fact that, by Residue Theorem, we have:

Do you know how to proceed? Have you seen similar examples?

Tried this way, but stucked where I had to equate real and imaginary parts as both the intergrals with sinx and cosx had complex denominators.

Can you upload what you tried? The final solution

"stucked" ???

Post your working. You should be able to equate real and imaginary parts after calculating the residue.

(You should also be able to explain why the integral round the semicircle goes to 0 as R increases - possibly you know a lemma that covers this from your lectures?)

Expanding sine x simplified the intergral, Thank you all!...
