Homework Help: Has this integral an analitycal solution

  1. Apr 22, 2009 #1

    Does anybody know how to solve next integral:

    \int \frac{\sqrt{(y_1-y)\cos{y}}}{\sqrt{c_1-(y_1-y)\cos{y}}} dy

    where [tex] y_1 [/tex] and [tex] c_1 [/tex] are constants.

    I am rewriting it, because it seems that latex is not working:

    ∫ (sqrt[(y_1-y) cos[y]]) / (sqrt[c_1 -(y_1-y) cos[y]]) dy

    where y_1 and c_1 are constants.

    This integral does not have a primitive according to Mathematica.
