(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Tan∅ dr + 2r d∅=0

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

∫1/2r dr +∫1/tan∅ d∅=0

1/2ln(2r)+ln(tan∅)=c

ln[r(tan∅)]=ln(c)

r(tan∅)=c

the solution in the book says the answer is rsin^2∅=c

Where did I go wrong?

Thank you
