Integral of ln²(x)
In this post I will show you how to find the anti-derivative of the function f(x)=ln²(x).
We are going to use integration by parts:
Now we can write u times v minus the integral of v times du:
Let’s bring out the 2 (linearity); also, the two x‘s will cancel out.
We saw here that the integral of ln(x) is equal to xln(x)-x, therefore:
If you want, you can factor out the x:
