Homework Help: Integrating this function

  1. Nov 7, 2016 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    I'm trying to integrate this, the only variable is y the others(x,w) are all constants.
    2. Relevant equations
    The ways of integrating that I am familiar with are substitution, trigonometric substitution, by parts & partial fraction decomposition.

    3. The attempt at a solution
    Looking at this I can't think of where I'd begin, should I rearange? Is it multistep? It it possible ? I'd appreciate any help :)

    PF rules say that you are required to put in effort and show your work. So, try out the methods you have learned. If Method I does not work, then try Method II. If that does not work, turn to Method III, etc. And yes, indeed, it takes some (possibly wasted) work and uses a lot of (possibly wasted) paper but that is how you will learn.
