The function f(x) is defined on the interval 0<x<L by f(x)=x. It can be represented by the fourier cosine series
f(x) = a_0 + sum a_n cos(n*pi*x / L)
Find its Fourier coefficients a_0 and a_n.
Multiply both sides by cos(n*pi*x / L) and integrate from L to 0. Then integration by parts.
The Attempt at a Solution
I got a_0 = L and a_n = 4L/ n^2 pi^2
The answers should be : a_0 = L/4 and a_n = -2L/n^2 pi^2 for n = odd and a_n=0 for n = even.
