## Question:

Use trigonometric substitution to evaluate the integral.

{eq}\displaystyle \int_{\frac{1}{\sqrt{7}}}^{\sqrt{\frac{2}{7}}} \frac{x^3}{\sqrt{7x^2 - 1}}\,dx {/eq}

## Integration by Trigonometric Substitution:

The integration which makes the effect of changing the function and integration is called integration by substitution. Here we used trigonometric substitution which is defined as the radical function which can be replaced by the trigonometric function is called the trigonometric substitution.

Some fundamental relations we used to solve the integration:

1. An algebraic property: {eq}\displaystyle \int _0^{\frac{\pi }{4}}\sec ^4\left(u\right)du=\int _0^{\frac{\pi }{4}}\sec ^2\left(u\right)\sec ^2\left(u\right)du. {/eq}

2. Eject the constant out: {eq}\displaystyle \int m\cdot f\left(r\right)dr=m\cdot \int f\left(r\right)dr. {/eq}

3. The trigonometric identity: {eq}\displaystyle \sec ^2\left(x\right)=1+\tan ^2\left(x\right). {/eq}

4. The sum rule: {eq}\displaystyle \int f\left(r\right)\pm g\left(r\right)dr=\int f\left(r\right)dr\pm \int g\left(r\right)dr. {/eq}

5. The power rule: {eq}\displaystyle \int r^m dr=\frac{r^{m+1}}{m+1}, \quad m\ne -1. {/eq}

6. integration of a constant: {eq}\displaystyle \int a dr=a r. {/eq}
