So here we are given an integral. But first let's ride it with a definite integral. But first let's write an indefinite integral for So right away this is a form of integration by parts. Since we don't know the integral of natural UNCW we have to take this as you will you take uh D V as equivalent to w squared t W. So U equals natural look of W Do. You would be equivalent to one over W. The W And fee would be equivalent to w cubed over three. And now we have sufficient information. Remember integration by parts you? D V equals U V minus V. D. U. So this would be equivalent to W cube Over three. Natural log W. So the minus V. D. U. So this would be equivalent to minus the integral of W. Mhm. G W. So this is equivalent to WQ over three. Natural log of W minus w squared over two. And let's make this easier by factoring out a w squirt. So this would be equivalent to W Over three. Natural log of W minus one house. And now let's put this in terms of a definite role which we were initially interested in. So lower limit and upper limit of integration. So this would be equivalent to four Times 2/3 Natural log of two minus one half. Then this is attracted by that the squared would just be one in this case. So it b minus one third. Natural lack of one is equivalent to zero. So this this crosses out And this would be -1 half. So you see this is 8/3 natural log of two. This would be minus two plus one half, Which is -3 house and this gives our solution to the definite integral.
