Many CAS not able to solve integral
Hello,
I tried(with wolfram integrator, mupad & derive) to solve this integral: SIN(x)·(1 - COS(x))· !!! ANGLES IN DEGREE!!! None of the three Computer Algebra Systems were able to do this correct(i set angle options). Can anybody help me? Thanks, Nuggetprime |

Let x be the angle in degrees, so the angle in radians is:
So you want to integrate: using standard sin and cos functions in radian. Since we get: And its integral is: So the result in degrees is (using cosines in degrees): I don't know the solution given by these packages but the difference between their results and the one I gave above should be a constant. Please notice that there are many ways to represent trigonometric identities so it is possible that two very different looking expressions are equal.
