Help with integration

  1. Mar 1, 2012 #1
    --------------------- (divide by)

    Tried integrating with substitution with U = x2+a2)
    Then dU = 2xdx
    x = √(U-a2)

    Leaving me with dU/ (2x) (U)3/2
    = ∫dU/2

    But that doesn't help either.

    Do I need to use a table? Thanks for any help.

    You can use that 1/(1+tan^2(θ))=cos^2(θ)

    Substitute x/a=tan(u).
