Integration by Parts

A formula used to integrate the product of two functions.


Example 1:Evaluate .

Use u = x and dv = ex/2 dx. Then we get du = dx and v = 2ex/2. This can be summarized:

u = xdv = ex/2 dx
du = dxv = 2ex/2

It follows that


Example 2:Evaluate .


Use the following:

u = tan-1xdv = dx
v = x



Example 3:Evaluate .


Let I =. Proceed as follows:

u = sinxdv = exdx
du = cosx dxv = ex


Now use integration by parts on the remaining integral . Use the following assignments:

u = cosxdv = exdx
du = –sinx dxv = ex


Note that appears on both sides of this equation. Replace it with I and then solve.

We finally obtain
