Find the integral of: 1 /( cos(u)^(2) sin(u) )

  1. Sep 29, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Find the integral of:

    1 /( cos(u)^(2) sin(u) )

    2. Relevant equations

    The problem says to make the 1 in the numerator= sin(u)^(2)+cos(u)^(2)


    3. The attempt at a solution

    sin(u)^(2)+cos(u)^(2) / ( cos(u)^(2) sin(u) )

    (What should I do first?)

    Re: Integration

    Split it up into the addition of 2 fractions, then cancel like products. This will result in 2 fairly simple integrals.
