Lesson Summary:

In this lesson, Karl Weierstrass' method for integrating rational functions with sine and cosines is continued. The focus is on partial fraction decomposition and solving for A and B values. The technique for integrating the rational functions is also discussed, including using natural log integrals and replacing U with tangent of X over 2.

    The problem from the first part is finished off in this video. Partial fractions are used in order to integrate the rational trig function. This problem is a rather involved example, but every step is explained and done slowly.
