Strange Integral- Does it even exist?

  1. Jul 25, 2008 #1
    I was watching DonnyLee's videos on youtube and I noticed something strange. I think he picked u=x and du=dx, and if I'm right (?) he picked v= [tex]\int x dy/dx[/tex] but does that even equal to y? But that can't be right because the right side kept the original expression. Some help might clear up the fuzziness

    I believe:

    u = y. du = dy/dx * dx.
    dv = d/dx* x * dx. v = x.
