This page consists of 100 calculus 2 practice problems based on a video from one of our favorite instructors. We have laid out each practice problem and included the video clip containing each solution.
Here is the list of practice problems. We recommend that you download this pdf before starting.
Make sure you support the guy that did this video. He put a LOT of work into, not just doing the video, but also preparing the problems and making sure his solutions were correct. He did a GREAT job. So go to YouTube and like this video and follow him. He is one of our favorite instructors. (By the way, we are not receiving any compensation from him. We just think his videos will help you.)
We have another page with 100 infinite series practice problems by this same guy.
Notes
1. In this video, some of his problems are multiple choice. See his handout for the choices but we recommmend that you work each problem without looking at the choices. This will prepare you better for your exams, especially your final exam.
2. When evaluating integrals using integration by parts, he uses a tabular method. We strongly recommend that you do not work them with this shortcut. It essentially allows you to use integration by parts without having to learn the technique. When we teach, we do not give credit for problems worked this way. However, check with your instructor to see what they require.
3. The problems here are not in the same order as he has them in the video. We have grouped them by type in order for you to focus on the techniques that you need more practice on for your exam. You can find his question number in the hint. Here are the sections.

His notation in this problem is not very good. For starters, he uses the tabular method to do integration by parts. He does this most of the time. However, we do not recommend that method since it does not teach you to actually understand and use integration by parts. However, to check your answer, it is okay.
Also, he has equal signs between equations that are obviously not equal. Make sure you do not do that in any of your work. But, of course, check with your instructor to see what they expect.

Hint 

[Question 97]
Solution 

The equation he gets to calculate area is \(\displaystyle{ A = \int_{\pi}^{2\pi}{ \frac{1}{2}(\theta \sin \theta)^2 d\theta }  \int_{0}^{\pi}{ \frac{1}{2}(\theta \sin \theta)^2 d\theta } }\). The first integral is the area of the large figure and the second integral is the smaller figure. Basically, he calculates the full area and then subtracts the hole in the middle.
In the video, he just sets up the integrals and then plugs them into a calculator to get an approximate answer. Hopefully, you didn't do that. So we present here the details of the integration and how to get the exact answer.
The nice thing is that both integrands are the same, so we really only need to evaluate one integral.
\(\displaystyle{ \int{ (\theta \sin \theta)^2 ~d\theta } }\) 
\(\displaystyle{ \int{ \theta^2 \sin^2 \theta ~d\theta } }\) 
So it looks like we are going to have to do integration by parts twice. 
\( u = \theta^2 \to du = 2\theta ~d\theta \) 
\( dv = \sin^2 \theta ~d\theta \to v = \int{ \sin^2 \theta ~d\theta } \) 
\(\displaystyle{ v = \int{ \frac{1}{2} [1  \cos(2\theta) ] ~d\theta } }\) 
\(\displaystyle{ v = \frac{1}{2} \int{ 1  \cos (2\theta) ~d\theta } }\) 
\(\displaystyle{ v = \frac{1}{2} \left[ \theta  \frac{\sin(2\theta)}{2} \right] }\) 
\(\displaystyle{ v = \frac{\theta}{2}  \frac{\sin(2\theta)}{4} }\) 
Okay, we found \(du\) and \(v\), so we set up our integration by parts integrals. 
\(\displaystyle{ \int{ \theta^2 \sin^2 \theta ~d\theta } = \theta^2 \left[ \frac{\theta}{2}  \frac{\sin(2\theta)}{4} \right]  \int{ \frac{\theta}{2}  \frac{\sin(2\theta)}{4} (2\theta) ~d\theta } }\) 
\(\displaystyle{ \frac{\theta^2}{4}[ 2\theta  \sin(2\theta) ]  \int{ \theta^2  \frac{\theta \sin(2\theta)}{2} ~d\theta } }\) 
\(\displaystyle{ \frac{\theta^2}{4}[ 2\theta  \sin(2\theta) ]  \frac{\theta^3}{3} + \int{ \frac{\theta \sin(2\theta)}{2} ~d\theta } }\) 
Do integration by parts a second time. 
\( u = \theta/2 \to du = d\theta/2 \) 
\( dv = \sin(2\theta)~d\theta \to v = \cos(2\theta)/2 \) 
\(\displaystyle{ \frac{\theta^2}{4}[ 2\theta  \sin(2\theta) ]  \frac{\theta^3}{3} + \left[ \frac{\theta}{4}\cos(2\theta) \right]  \int{ \frac{\cos(2\theta)}{4} ~d\theta } }\) 
\(\displaystyle{ \frac{\theta^2}{4}[ 2\theta  \sin(2\theta) ]  \frac{\theta^3}{3}  \frac{\theta}{4}\cos(2\theta) + \frac{\sin(2\theta)}{8} }\) 
So this last expression is the integral \(\displaystyle{ \int{ \theta^2 \sin^2 \theta ~d\theta } }\) 

Okay, here is the original equation to calculate area. 
\(\displaystyle{ A = \int_{\pi}^{2\pi}{ \frac{1}{2}(\theta \sin \theta)^2 d\theta }  \int_{0}^{\pi}{ \frac{1}{2}(\theta \sin \theta)^2 d\theta } }\) 
We need to multiply our result by \(1/2\) and evaluate it at the endpoints. Before we jump into the calculations, let's look at what is going on. Notice that for the first integral, we evaluate our result at \(2\pi\). Then we evaluate our result at \(\pi\) and subtract it. For the second integral, we evaluate our result at \(\pi\) and subtract an evaluation at \(0\). The evaluation at zero gives us zero for every term. Also, every sine term is zero. So evaluating this expression is much simpler than it looks. 
At \(\theta = 2\pi\), we have \(\displaystyle{ \frac{8\pi^3}{4}  \frac{8\pi^3}{6}  \frac{2\pi}{8} }\) 
At \(\theta = \pi\), we have \(\displaystyle{ \frac{\pi^3}{4}  \frac{\pi^3}{6}  \frac{\pi}{8} }\) 
Let's put all the expressions together before we simplify. 
\(\displaystyle{ \left[ \frac{8\pi^3}{4}  \frac{8\pi^3}{6}  \frac{2\pi}{8} \right]  }\) \(\displaystyle{ \left[ \frac{\pi^3}{4}  \frac{\pi^3}{6}  \frac{\pi}{8} \right]  }\) \(\displaystyle{ \left[ \frac{\pi^3}{4}  \frac{\pi^3}{6}  \frac{\pi}{8} \right] + 0 }\) 
The last zero in the above expression represents evaluating our result at \(\theta = 0\). 
Before we move on, let's look at the last expression. Notice that all three terms with \(8\) in the denominator cancel. Combining the terms with the same denominators gives us this. 
\(\displaystyle{ \frac{6\pi^3}{4}  \frac{6\pi^3}{6} }\) 
\(\displaystyle{ \frac{3\pi^3}{2}  \frac{2\pi^3}{2} }\) 
\(\displaystyle{ \frac{\pi^3}{2} }\) 
And that's it. The shaded area in the figure is \(A=\pi^3/2\). This matches his approximate answer of \(15.503\). Whew! I can understand why he just plugged the integral into his calculator.

[Question 2] In his solution, he set up the integral for the top half of the petal on the right and then multiplied by two. This is the recommended way to solve this problem since it involves a simple integral.
Solution 

In his video solution, he just set up the integral and then used a calculator to calculate the approximate value. If you are not allowed to use a calculator in your class or on the exam, here is how to solve this integral.
His integral is \(\displaystyle{ 2 \int_{0}^{\pi/6}{ (1/2)( \cos (3\theta) )^2 ~ d\theta } }\) 
Use the identity \( \cos^2 t = (1 + \cos(2t))/2 \) to get 
\(\displaystyle{ \int_{0}^{\pi/6}{ (1 + \cos(6\theta))/2 ~ d\theta } }\) 
\(\displaystyle{ (1/2) \int_{0}^{\pi/6}{ 1 + \cos(6\theta) ~ d\theta } }\) 
\(\displaystyle{ (1/2) \left[ \theta \right]_{0}^{\pi/6} + (1/2) \int_{0}^{\pi/6}{ \cos(6\theta) ~ d\theta } }\) 
\(\displaystyle{ \pi/12 + (1/2) \left[ \frac{\sin(6\theta)}{6} \right]_0^{\pi/6} }\) 
\(\displaystyle{ \pi/12 + (1/12) (\sin \pi + \sin 0) }\) 
\(\displaystyle{ \pi/12 + (1/12) (0 + 0) = \pi/12 }\)

He sets up the integral but doesn't finish the problem by showing how to do the integration. Here are the details.
\(\displaystyle{\int_{\pi/2}^{\pi}{ (1/2)( \cos\theta  \sin\theta)^2 ~d\theta }  \frac{\pi}{4} }\) 
\(\displaystyle{ (1/2) \int_{\pi/2}^{\pi}{ \cos^2\theta  2\cos\theta \sin\theta + \sin^2 \theta ~d\theta }  \frac{\pi}{4} }\) 
\(\displaystyle{ (1/2) \int_{\pi/2}^{\pi}{ (1/2)(1+\cos(2\theta))  2\cos\theta \sin\theta + (1/2)(1\cos(2\theta)) ~d\theta }  \frac{\pi}{4} }\) 
\(\displaystyle{ (1/2) \int_{\pi/2}^{\pi}{ 12\cos\theta\sin\theta ~ d\theta }  \frac{\pi}{4} }\) 
Use integration by substitution with \( u = \sin\theta \to du = \cos\theta d\theta\) 
for \( \theta = \pi/2 \), \( u = \sin\theta \to u = \sin (\pi/2) = 1\) 
for \( \theta = \pi \), \( u = \sin\theta \to u = \sin (\pi) = 0\) 
\(\displaystyle{ [\theta/2]_{\pi/2}^{\pi}  \int_{1}^0{ u~du }  \frac{\pi}{4} }\) 
\(\displaystyle{ \pi/2  \pi/4  (1/2)[u^2]_{1}^0  \frac{\pi}{4} = 1/2 }\)
