# Trouble remembering integration

LocationX
Hi, I'm having trouble remembering integration...

$$\int cos(60 \pi x)$$

this becomes... sin(60 pi x)/60 pi?

Yes, that's correct... plus a constant if you're looking for the indefinite integral.

Basically, if you remember derivation, there is nothing to remember about integration except that it is the inverse of derivation. If you doubt that the integral of cos(60x) is sin(60x)/60, just verify that the derivative of sin(60x)/60 is cos(60x).

integration of cos...

Yes it's ok. Remember how to derive sin and cos and it will surely be easier for you

Just remember that nice substitution rule...
$$\int {\cos \left( {60\pi x} \right)dx} = \frac{1}{{60\pi }}\int {\cos \left( 60\pi x \right)d\left( {60\pi x} \right)} = \boxed{\frac{{\sin \left( {60\pi x} \right)}}{{60\pi }} + C}$$

...and check via derivative (chain rule here)
$$\frac{d}{{dx}}\left[ {\frac{{\sin \left( {60\pi x} \right)}}{{60\pi }} + C} \right] = \frac{{\cos \left( {60\pi x} \right) \cdot 60\pi }}{{60\pi }} = \cos \left( {60\pi x} \right)$$
