00:00:00.520 --> 00:00:10.160
Determine the definite integral from negative π by four to negative π by six of four plus π times the cos of nine π₯ with respect to π₯.
00:00:11.560 --> 00:00:16.560
Weβre asked to evaluate the definite integral of a constant plus a trigonometric function.
00:00:17.600 --> 00:00:23.960
And we know how to evaluate definite integrals by using the fundamental theorem of calculus.
00:00:24.960 --> 00:00:33.400
So weβll start by recalling the part of the fundamental theorem of calculus which tells us how to evaluate definite integrals.
00:00:34.680 --> 00:00:54.280
We have if lowercase π is continuous on the closed interval from π to π and capital πΉ prime of π₯ is equal to lowercase π of π₯, then the definite integral from π to π of lowercase π of π₯ with respect to π₯ is equal to capital πΉ evaluated at π minus capital πΉ evaluated at π.
00:00:55.200 --> 00:01:11.760
In other words, if our integrand is continuous on the interval of integration and we have an antiderivative of our integrand, then we can evaluate our definite integral by using our antiderivative.
00:01:12.480 --> 00:01:20.880
Itβs equal to capital πΉ evaluated at π, the upper limit of integration, minus capital πΉ evaluated at π, the lower limit of integration.
00:01:22.200 --> 00:01:25.560
So letβs start by finding the values of these given to us in the question.
00:01:26.520 --> 00:01:33.680
We see our upper limit of integration is negative π by six, and the lower limit of integration is negative π by four.
00:01:34.400 --> 00:01:39.840
So π is negative π by four, and π is negative π by six.
00:01:40.680 --> 00:01:47.920
Next, we set lowercase π of π₯ to be our integrand, four plus π times the cos of nine π₯.
00:01:49.000 --> 00:01:59.240
Now, remember, to use the fundamental theorem of calculus, we need to check that our integrand is continuous on the interval of integration.
00:02:00.080 --> 00:02:06.640
In this case, we can see that our integrand is the sum of two continuous functions.
00:02:07.240 --> 00:02:10.400
Itβs a constant plus a trigonometric function.
00:02:11.240 --> 00:02:16.400
In particular, we know the cos of nine π₯ is continuous for all real values of π₯.
00:02:17.000 --> 00:02:23.720
So our integrand is the sum of two functions continuous for all real values of π₯.
00:02:24.400 --> 00:02:29.360
In particular, this means that π will be continuous on our interval of integration.
00:02:30.080 --> 00:02:34.200
So weβve shown that the first part is true.
00:02:35.200 --> 00:02:39.680
We now need to find an antiderivative of our integrand.
00:02:40.520 --> 00:02:42.600
And there are several different ways of doing this.
00:02:43.160 --> 00:02:48.000
However, the easiest is to use what we know about indefinite integrals.
00:02:48.960 --> 00:02:54.040
Remember, indefinite integrals is a way of finding antiderivatives.
00:02:54.720 --> 00:02:57.400
And we know how to do this term by term.
00:02:58.480 --> 00:03:03.200
First, the integral of the constant four with respect to π₯ is equal to four π₯.
00:03:04.160 --> 00:03:12.240
Next, to integrate our second term, we need to recall one of our standard integral results for trigonometric functions.
00:03:13.280 --> 00:03:24.640
For any real constant π not equal to zero, the integral of the cos of ππ₯ with respect to π₯ is equal to the sin of ππ₯ divided by π plus a constant of integration πΆ.
00:03:25.920 --> 00:03:27.720
In our case, the value of π is equal to nine.
00:03:28.480 --> 00:03:32.920
So we get π times the sin of nine π₯ all divided by nine.
00:03:33.960 --> 00:03:35.720
And we add a constant of integration πΆ.
00:03:36.720 --> 00:03:41.120
And this gives us antiderivatives of our integrand.
00:03:42.360 --> 00:03:46.600
In fact, this is an antiderivative for any value of the constant πΆ.
00:03:47.760 --> 00:03:52.160
But we only need one integrand.
00:03:53.120 --> 00:03:55.520
So weβll just set the value of πΆ equal to zero.
00:03:55.880 --> 00:04:02.920
This gives us capital πΉ of π₯ is equal to four π₯ plus π times the sin of nine π₯ divided by nine.
00:04:04.240 --> 00:04:17.240
Now that weβve found our antiderivative and shown that our integral is continuous across the entire interval of integration, weβre ready to use the fundamental theorem of calculus to evaluate our definite integral.
00:04:18.320 --> 00:04:29.280
We get that this definite integral is equal to four π₯ plus π times the sin of nine π₯ divided by nine evaluated at the limits of integration, negative π by four and negative π by six.
00:04:30.360 --> 00:04:33.800
Now, all thatβs left to do is evaluate this at the limits of integration.
00:04:34.640 --> 00:04:38.720
Weβll start with the upper limits of integration, when π₯ is equal to negative π by six.
00:04:39.520 --> 00:04:43.280
We substitute π₯ is equal to negative π by six into our antiderivative.
00:04:44.240 --> 00:04:52.920
This gives us four times negative π by six plus π times the sin of nine times negative π by six all divided by nine.
00:04:53.960 --> 00:04:58.480
And if we evaluate this expression, we get negative five π by nine.
00:04:59.480 --> 00:05:02.320
Weβll now do the same with our lower limits of integration.
00:05:03.160 --> 00:05:05.360
Remember, we need to subtract this value.
00:05:06.440 --> 00:05:10.960
So we substitute π₯ is equal to negative π by four into our antiderivative.
00:05:12.000 --> 00:05:19.840
This gives us four times negative π by four plus π times the sin of nine times negative π by four divided by nine.
00:05:20.680 --> 00:05:23.080
And now we can start simplifying once again.
00:05:23.880 --> 00:05:27.480
First, four times negative π by four is equal to negative π.
00:05:28.200 --> 00:05:37.520
Next, if we evaluate π times the sin of negative nine π by four divided by nine, we get negative root two π divided by 18.
00:05:38.320 --> 00:05:48.520
So this entire expression simplified to give us negative five π by nine minus negative π minus root two π divided by 18.
00:05:49.480 --> 00:06:00.240
And finally, if we evaluate this expression, we get root two π divided by 18 plus four π by nine, which is our final answer.
00:06:01.240 --> 00:06:25.880
Therefore, by using the fundamental theorem of calculus and what we know about indefinite integrals of trigonometric functions, we were able to show the definite integral from negative π by four to negative π by six of four plus π times the cos of nine π₯ with respect to π₯ is equal to root two π divided by 18 plus four π by nine.
