Integrating Products of Multiple Angle Trigonometric Functions
Integrals of the formorcan be evaluated instantly. For example,
When the integrand is tow multiple and trigonometric terms multiplied together, we must use a trigonometric identity to express the integrand as the sum of two trigonometric terms using the identities
each term of which can be integrated separately.
