Integrate the rutherford cross section over the backward hemisphere to get 4pi(sigma0(E))

2. Relevant equations

Rutherford cross section is sigma0(E)/sin^4(theta/2)

3. The attempt at a solution

When I integrate this with the limits pi/2 to pi i get sigma0(E)*(8/3) i don't know what i'm doing wrong.
