How do I integrate ?

  1. Jul 15, 2006 #1
    \int{ \frac{x^2}{\sqrt{4-x^2}} }

    How would I do that?
    I tried integrating by parts, letting u = x^2 and v' = 1/sqrt(4-x^2) and many other combinations, but I just can't seem to get the result.

    A trig substitution will work, surely.

    Let [itex] x= 2 sin(\theta)[/itex]
