Homework Help: 2g convergence of tan function

  1. Apr 11, 2009 #1
    i need to find the values of p so that the following integral converges

    [tex]\int[/tex](tan(x))pdx (from 0-[tex]\pi[/tex]/2)

    the only way i could think of doing this was integration in parts, but i get stuck

    [tex]\int[/tex](tan(x))p =[tex]\int[/tex](sinp(x)/cosp(x))
    u=sinpx
    du=-p*sinp-1(x)cos(x)
    dv=dx/cosp(x)

    but i dont know how to integrate 1/cospdx to find my v

    what would be a better way to do this?
