(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); [SOLVED] Integral of x^2*sin(ax)dx

So, I'm a newb at Integration, especially by parts.

This is what I have

[tex]\int x^{2}sin(ax)dx[/tex]

I set:

u=x[tex]^{2}[/tex] and dv=sin(ax)dx

so I got:

du=2xdx and v=-cos(ax)/a

So then I put everything together

[tex]u*v- \int v*du[/tex]

[tex]-x^{2}*\frac{-cos(ax)}{a} - \int \frac{-cos(ax)}{a}*2xdx[/tex]

[tex]-x^{2}*\frac{-cos(ax)}{a} + 2\int \frac{-cos(ax)}{a}*xdx[/tex]

So that's pretty much where I get lost. I don't know what do do about the second integral.

I tried setting u = 2x and dv = cos(ax)/a * dx and I got

-x^2*cos(ax)/a - 2xsin(ax) - 2cos(ax)

but WebAssign (website where I submit homework) says that's wrong.

This is my first post here. I had some trouble with some other problems that I have so I googled them and most of the search results pointed me here.

So, any suggestions are appreciated.

Thanks
