The integral of (sin(t)cos(t)) has two possible solutions: {(sint)^2}/2 and {-(cost)^2}/2 eventhough these two function are not same. Although these both solutions give same values for the definite integrals, different results are obtained when such integration appears when solving differential equations. I need some help to get out of this confusion and need to know how do we choose which solution we should use for a given problem(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
