# Antiderivative Of Secx

Antiderivative Of Secx Hello friends today we will discuss how to find the antiderivative of sec x for finding the antiderivative of secx we will use some identities of trigonometry,substitution method and the partial fraction method the antiderivative of secx is also known as as integration of secx let me show you what is the actual mean of partial fraction and the way of its use. For finding antiderivative secx use the trigonometric identity secx = 1/cosx This implies that secx = cosx/1-sin2x It means secx dx = cosx/1-sin2x dx Now use the substitution method of integration for sinx Let sinx =t by differentiating it we get cosx dx = dt Put the value of sinx and dx in above integral equation so that we get

cosx/1-sin2x dx = t/(1-t2) dt Now we use the partial fraction method Let t/(1-t2) = A/(1-t) + B/(1+t) by solving it we will get A + B =1 and At Bt =0 By solving these equation for A and B we will get A = and B = By substituting the value of A and B in the equation t/(1-t2) = A/(1-t) + B/(1+t) We will get t/(1-t2) = 1/2(1-t) + 1/2(1+t) By doing integration both side we get t/(1-t2) = 1/2(1-t) + 1/2(1+t) It implies that t/(1-t2) = -1/2 Log(1-t) +1/2 Log(1+t) Log x because 1/x =

It implies that t/(1-t2) =Log((1+t)/(1-t))1/2 since Log x Log y = Log(x/y) By substituting the value of t in the equation we will get secx dx = cosx/1-sin2x dx = Log(secx+ tanx) so finally we get the result that antiderivative secx = Log(secx+ tanx) as we seen the antiderivative of secx become quite easier by the method we used known as partial fraction.by other method may be the antiderivative secx is quite typical and confusing.
