This page covers integration of functions involving sines and/or cosines in more advanced form that require techniques other than just integration by substitution. [If you are first learning sine and cosine in integration, check out the basics of trig integration page.]
Most of the techniques you need are discussed on this page except for the sine and cosine reduction formulas. We derive them and give you practice problems on two separate pages, the sine reduction formula page and the cosine reduction formula page.

Difference Between Trig Integration and Trig Substitution

Trig integration, covered on this page, is the evaluation of integrals that already have trig functions in the integrand.

Trig substitution is a technique that takes an integrand that most likely does NOT contain any trig functions, and uses some trig identities to introduce trig functions into the integrand. Once the integral is completely transformed, then trig integration is used to evaluate the integral. Once the evaluation is complete, another set of substitutions, based on the original ones, is done to convert the result back to the original variable.

convert trig functions to sine and cosine and
try the sine/cosine techniques

In order to choose the technique you need to use, you need to determine the form of the integrand and how many angles are involved.

One Angle

When all the sine and cosine terms in the integrand involve the same angle, here is what you do.

Case 1 - one sine term only: \( \int{ \sin^n(\theta) ~d\theta} \)

Use the reduction formula found on the sine reduction formula page.

 

Case 2 - one cosine term only: \( \int{ \cos^n(\theta) ~d\theta} \)

Use the reduction formula discussed on the cosine reduction formula page.

 

Case 3 - odd term: \( \int{ \sin^m(\theta)~\cos^n(\theta) ~d\theta} \) with odd m or n

Factor out the odd term (if they are both odd, you can choose) and use \(\sin^2\theta + \cos^2\theta = 1\) on the remaining term, then use substitution.

 

Case 4 - even term: \( \int{ \sin^m(\theta)~\cos^n(\theta) ~d\theta} \) with even m and n

Use the half-angle formulas to remove the powers.

Okay, let's work some practice problems before we go on.

Practice

Unless otherwise instructed, evaluate the following integrals using the techniques on this page. Give all answers in exact, simplified form.

Basic

\(\displaystyle{ \int{ \sin^4(2x)\cos(2x)~dx } }\)

Problem Statement

Evaluate \(\displaystyle{ \int{ \sin^4(2x)\cos(2x)~dx } }\). Give your answer in exact, simplified and factored form.

Final Answer

\(\displaystyle{ \int{ \sin^4(2x)\cos(2x)~dx } = \frac{\sin^5(2x)}{10}+C }\)

Problem Statement

Evaluate \(\displaystyle{ \int{ \sin^4(2x)\cos(2x)~dx } }\). Give your answer in exact, simplified and factored form.

Solution

Our first inclination might be to use the half-angle formulas for \(\sin(2x)\) and \(\cos(2x)\). However, on closer inspection, we can see that both of the angles are the same, i.e. both are \(2x\). So this falls under case 3 above. The first part is done, i.e. the odd cosine is already factored out, so we are ready to use substitution. So we let \(u=\sin(2x)\).
This gives us \(du = 2\cos(2x)dx \to du/2 = \cos(2x)dx\)

\(\displaystyle{ \int{ \sin^4(2x)\cos(2x) ~dx } = \int{u^4 (du/2)} }\)

\(\displaystyle{\frac{1}{2}\frac{u^5}{5} + C }\)

\(\displaystyle{ \frac{u^5}{10} + C }\)

\(\displaystyle{ \frac{\sin^5(2x)}{10} + C }\)

Final Answer

\(\displaystyle{ \int{ \sin^4(2x)\cos(2x)~dx } = \frac{\sin^5(2x)}{10}+C }\)

\(\displaystyle{ \int{ \cos^5x\sin^5x~dx } }\)

Problem Statement

Evaluate \(\displaystyle{ \int{ \cos^5x\sin^5x~dx } }\). Give your answer in exact, simplified and factored form.

Solution

For this problem, he doesn't go into a lot of detail in the integration. I would probably leave the integral as
\(\displaystyle{ \int{ (\sin^5x - 2\sin^7x + \sin^9x) } }\) \(\cos x ~dx\) and use the substitution \(u = \sin x\) to get
\(\displaystyle{ \int{ u^5 - 2u^7 + u^9 ~du } = \frac{u^6}{6} - \frac{u^8}{4} + \frac{u^{10}}{10} + C }\)
The final answer follows more directly from this.

However, we would just use integration by substitution by letting \(u=\sin\theta\) to get this result.

Final Answer

\(\displaystyle{\frac{1}{192}\left[ 12x + 4\sin^3(2x)-3\sin(4x)\right] + C}\)

Problem Statement

Evaluate \(\displaystyle{ \int{ \cos^4x~\sin^2x~dx } }\). Give your answer in exact, simplified and factored form.

Solution

\(\int{\cos^4 x \sin^2 x~dx}\)

use the half-angle formulas \(\cos^2 t = [1+\cos(2t)]/2\) and \(\sin^2 t = [1-\cos(2t)]/2\)

\(\displaystyle{\int{\left[ \frac{1+\cos(2x)}{x}\right]^2 \left[ \frac{1-\cos(2x)}{2}\right]~dx}}\)

\(\displaystyle{\frac{1}{8}\int{[1+2\cos(2x)+\cos^2(2x)][1-\cos(2x)]~dx}}\)

\(\displaystyle{\frac{1}{8}\int{1+\cos(2x)-\cos^2{2x}-\cos^3(2x)~dx}}\)

on the third term, use the half-angle formula again;
on the fourth term pull out one cosine and use the identity \(\cos^2(t)+\sin^2(t)=1\), i.e. \(\cos^3(2x)=\cos^2(2x)\cos(2x) = \) \((1-\sin^2(2x))\cos(2x)\)

\(\displaystyle{\frac{1}{8}\left[ x + \frac{\sin(2x)}{2} - \int{\frac{1+\cos(4x)}{2}~dx} - \int{[1-\sin^2(2x)]\cos(2x)~dx}\right]}\)

on the last term, we will use integration by substitution as follows

\(u=\sin(2x) \to du=2\cos(2x)~dx\)

\(\int{[1-\sin^2(2x)]\cos(2x)~dx} = \) \(\int{(1-u^2)~du/2} = \) \((1/2)(u-u^3/3)\)

placing this last result in the full integral, we have

\(\displaystyle{\frac{1}{8}\left[ x+\frac{\sin(2x)}{2} - \frac{x}{2} - \frac{\sin(4x)}{8} - \frac{\sin(2x)}{2} + \frac{\sin^3(2x)}{6}\right] + C}\)

simplify to get the final answer

Sines/Cosines in Denominator

Up until now, we have looked at only the case when all sine and cosine terms are in the numerator. So, what do you do when they are in the denominator? We will look at the case when they are mixed, i.e. terms are in both the numerator and denominator and, secondly, when all terms are in the denominator.
First, there is no definite formula to use for every case. So, to know when to use a technique, you need lots of practice and experience. Then you get a feel for what works and what doesn't.
1. When you have sine/cosine terms in both the numerator and denominator, usually substitution will work along with the techniques already listed above. You may also need to use trig identities like \(\sin^2\theta + \cos^2\theta = 1\) to replace terms.
2. When all the terms are in the denominator, one technique to try is replacing the one in the numerator with \(\sin^2\theta + \cos^2\theta\) and separate the integral into two terms.
Try these ideas on these practice problems.

Problem Statement

Evaluate \(\displaystyle{ \int{ \frac{\sin^3x}{\cos^3x} ~dx } }\). Give your answer in exact, simplified and factored form.

Solution

This integral is solved two different ways, shown in the first two videos. In the two videos, he gets what looks like two different answers. In the third video he shows that they differ only by a constant. He does it in a unique way though, by taking the derivative of the two answers and noticing they are equal. In the fourth video, he compares actual values to notice that the two answers differ by 0.5.
After all that work, I believe it is very easy to show that the answers differ only by a constant. Here is how.
Notice that the terms that don't match are \(0.5\tan^2x\) and \(0.5/\cos^2x\). Well, we know that \(1/\cos x = \sec x\). So \(1/\cos^2x = \sec^2x\). But we have the identity \(\sec^2x = 1+\tan^2x\). So \(0.5/\cos^2x = 0.5\sec^2x = 0.5(1+\tan^2x) = 0.5+0.5\tan^2x.\) So we know that the two answers differ by the constant 0.5. This 0.5 is absorbed in the general constant in each answer. So technically, he should have used two different symbols for the constants, like \(c_1\) and \(c_2\).
