[tex] \int {\sqrt{sin(x)}} cos(x)^3 dx [/tex]

Convert this into

[tex] \int {\sqrt{sin(x)}}cos^2(x)cos(x) [/tex].

From your identities in trignometry

[tex] cos^2(x) = 1 - sin^2(x) [/tex].

This will leave you with all sine terms and one cosine term once you rewrite cosine squared. Do you see what to do from here?

Use a substitution letting u = ln x.
