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'?

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

    your mistake seems to be in vdu

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