    \((\cos x)^2 = \cos^2 x = 1 - \sin ^2 x\) i think this can be applied? but seems no :/

    @RedPrince , the problem is solved. First write \[\cos^2 x = \frac{(1+\cos(2x))}{2}\] We get \[\frac{1}{2}(\int\limits_{}^{}{\sqrt{sinx}dx} +\int\limits_{}^{}{\cos(2x){sinx}dx} )\] Now we integate them separately 1)\[\int\limits_{}^{}{\sqrt{sinx}dx} \] Take \[\sin x = t^2\] Therefore \[cosx dx=2tdt\] \[dx =\frac{ 2t}{cosx}\] Now write \[cosx=\sqrt{1-\sin^2 x}=\sqrt{1-t^4}\] Finally you get \[\int\limits_{}^{} \sqrt{sinx}dx = \int\limits_{}^{}\frac{2tdt}{\sqrt{1-t^4}}\] Now you should be able to integrate this. 2)\[\int\limits_{}^{}(\cos(2x))sinxdx=\int\limits_{}^{}(2\cos^2 x-1)sinxdx\] Now take p=cos x dp= -sinx dx \[-\int\limits_{}^{}{(2t^2-1)}dt\] Now you can integrate this too. Integrate both and finally subtitute t an p in terms of x and simplify. It is pretty long but the only solution which comes to my mind
