[tex]\int x\sqrt{C^2-x^2}dx[/tex]

Then just make the substitution [itex]u=x^2[/itex].

so then how would I integrate

[tex]\int (C^2-u)^{0.5}[/tex]

[tex]\int (C^2-u)^{0.5}[/tex]

[tex]du = -2x dx[/tex]

[tex]\frac{du}{-2x} = dx [/tex]

then you just use your normal integration rules.

Just a minor correction.LeonhardEuler said:

Then just make the substitution [itex]u=x^2[/itex].

We should have:

[tex]\int\sqrt{C^{2}x^{2}-x^{4}}dx=\int|x|\sqrt{C^{2}-x^{2}}dx[/tex]
