hi!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1. Is the definite integral over [sin(x)]^2 from 0 to a, is a/2? and also the cosine?

2. Is it because the average of the sin/cos functions is always 1/2?

3. and if so, the integration region doesn't matter because the function is positive?

I mean, what about integration from -a to a?

4. and from -3a to 0.5a? is it: 0.5*[3.5a]?

thanks!
