Is that a logarithm of base 10 or the natural logarithm?

Integrate by partial fraction.

how come if you change from pi to pi/2, the integral is doubled? I get that if the integrand was just sinx but isn't lnsinx something entirely different?

I only solved it based on your hints but I didn't know it was symmetric at pi/2. But how you knew to change the limits of integration beats me

Surely, you didn't get to where you are being expect to solve problems like this without learning that the derivative of cos x is -sin x??
