## anonymous 3 years ago integration by parts question. what is the indefinite integral of sqrt(t)ln(t)dt? I got (2/3)(t^(3/2))(ln(t) - 1) + C but the answer key says (2/9)(t^(3/2))(3ln(t) - 2) + C Sorry for lack of symbols, I know it's hard to read.

Which did you take as your 'u' and which as your 'dv'?

2. anonymous

u = ln(t), du = 1/t (dt); dv = t^(1/2)dt, v = (2t^(3/2)/3)

3. anonymous

your mistake seems to be in vdu

4. anonymous

$\huge \int vdu = \frac 23\int t^{3/2 - 2/2}$ is that what you did?

5. anonymous

yeah

6. anonymous

which gets 2/3 * integral of sqrt t

OHHHHHHHHH

i see what i did wrong, i think i'll get the right answer, thanks
