Some Topics discussed in RD Sharma Class 12 Maths Solutions Chapter 19 Indefinite Integrals

Definition of Indefinite Integrals

If f(x) is a function, then all its antiderivatives or primitives will be known as indefinite integrals of the function f(x), denoted by ∫f(x)dx.

Consider ∫f(x)dx as the indefinite integral of function f(x) w.r.t x.

The process by which we find the indefinite integral of a specific given function, it is said to be the integration of the function. 

Fundamental Integration formulas

D/dx{Φ(x)} = f(x)

⇔ ∫f(x)dx = Φ(x) + C

Some of the integration formulas are 

  1. ∫ xn dx = ((xn+1)/(n+1))+C ; n≠1
  2. ∫ sin x dx = – cos x + C
  3. ∫ cos x dx = sin x + C
  4. ∫ sec2 dx = tan x + C
  5. ∫ csc2 dx = -cot x + C
  6. ∫ sec x (tan x) dx = sec x + C
  7. ∫ csc x ( cot x) dx = – csc x + C
  8. ∫ (1/x) dx = ln |x| + C
  9. ∫ ex dx = ex+ C
  10. ∫ ax dx = (ax/ln a) + C ; a>0,  a≠1

Integration formulas are further classified into the following:

  1. Irrational functions
  2. Trigonometric functions
  3. Rational functions
  4. Logarithmic functions
  5. Gaussian functions
  6. Inverse trigonometric functions
  7. Hyperbolic functions
  8. Inverse hyperbolic functions
  9. Exponential functions

Standard results on Integration

Theorem – 

  1. D/dx(∫f(x)dx) = f(x) i.e. an integral’s differentiation will be an integrand or integration and differentiation will be the inverse operations.
  2. ∫k f(x) dx = k∫f(x) dx, where k will be a constant i.e. the integral of a (constant x function) will be the product of the constant and the function’s integral
  3. ∫{f(x) ± g(x)}dx = ∫ f(x)dx ± ∫g(x)dx which means the integral of the sum of a finite number or a difference of a finite number of functions will be the sum of the integrals or the difference of the integrals of the various functions.
