Integration Formulas
Integration formulas can be applied for the integration of algebraic expressions, trigonometric ratios, inverse trigonometric functions, and logarithmic and exponential functions. The integration of functions results in the original functions for which the derivatives were obtained. These integration formulas are used to find the antiderivative of a function. If we differentiate a function f in an interval I, then we get a family of functions in I. If the values of functions are known in I, then we can determine the function f. This inverse process of differentiation is called integration.
Let's move further and learn about integration formulas used in the integration techniques.
What are Integration Formulas?
The integration formulas have been broadly presented as the following sets of formulas. The formulas include basic integration formulas, integration of trigonometric ratios, inverse trigonometric functions, the product of functions, and some advanced set of integration formulas. Basically, integration is a way of uniting the part to find a whole. It is the inverse operation of differentiation. Thus the basic integration formula is ∫ f'(x) dx = f(x) + C. Using this, the following integration formulas are derived.
Let us discuss these formulas in detail.
Basic Integration Formulas
Using the fundamental theorems of integrals, there are generalized results obtained which are remembered as integration formulas in indefinite integration.
 ∫ x^{n} dx = x^{(n + 1)}/(n + 1)+ C
 ∫ 1 dx = x + C
 ∫ e^{x} dx = e^{x} + C
 ∫ 1/x dx = log x + C
 ∫ a^{x} dx = a^{x }/log a+ C
 ∫ e^{x }[f(x) + f'(x)] dx = e^{x }f(x) + C
Integration Formulas of Trigonometric functions
The process of finding the integral is integration. Here are a few important integration formulas remembered for instant and speedy calculations. When it comes to trigonometric functions, we simplify them and rewrite them as functions that are integrable. Here is a list of trigonometric and inverse trigonometric functions.

 ∫1/√(1  x^{2}) dx = sin^{1}x + C
 ∫ 1/√(1  x^{2}) dx = cos^{1}x + C
 ∫1/(1 + x^{2}) dx = tan^{1}x + C

 ∫ 1/x√(x^{2}  1) dx = sec^{1}x + C
 ∫ 1/x√(x^{2}  1) dx = cosec^{1 }x + C
Advanced Integration Formulas
Here are some advanced integral formulas that we may come across while solving the problems of integration.
 ∫1/(x^{2}  a^{2}) dx = 1/2a log(x  a)(x + a + C
 ∫ 1/(a^{2}  x^{2}) dx =1/2a log(a + x)(a  x) + C
 ∫1/(x^{2} + a^{2}) dx = 1/a tan^{1}x/a + C
 ∫1/√(x^{2}  a^{2})dx = log x +√(x^{2}  a^{2}) + C
 ∫ √(x^{2}  a^{2}) dx = x/2 √(x^{2}  a^{2}) a^{2}/2 log x + √(x^{2}  a^{2}) + C
 ∫1/√(a^{2}  x^{2}) dx = sin^{1 }x/a + C
 ∫√(a^{2}  x^{2}) dx = x/2 √(a^{2}  x^{2}) dx + a^{2}/2 sin^{1} x/a + C
 ∫1/√(x^{2} + a^{2 }) dx = log x + √(x^{2} + a^{2}) + C
 ∫ √(x^{2} + a^{2 }) dx = x/2 √(x^{2} + a^{2 })+ a^{2}/2 log x + √(x^{2} + a^{2}) + C
Different Integration Formulas
There are 3 types of integration methods and each method is applied with its own unique techniques involved in finding the integrals. They are the standardized results. They can be remembered as integration formulas.
Integration by parts formula:
When the given function is a product of two functions, we apply this integration by parts formula or partial integration and evaluate the integral. The integration formula while using partial integration is given as:
∫ f(x) g(x) dx = f(x) ∫g(x) dx  ∫ (∫f'(x) g(x) dx) dx + C
For example: ∫ xe^{x }dx is of the form ∫ f(x) g(x) dx. Thus we apply the appropriate integration formula and evaluate the integral.
f(x) = x and g(x) = e^{x}
Thus ∫ xe^{x }dx = x ∫e^{x } dx  ∫( 1 ∫e^{x }^{ } dx) dx+ c
= xe^{x } e^{x }+ c
Integration by substitution formula:
When a function is a function of another function, then we apply the integration formula for substitution. If I = ∫ f(x) dx, where x = g(t) so that dx/dt = g'(t), then we write dx = g'(t)
We can write I = ∫ f(x) dx = ∫ f(g(t)) g'(t) dt
For example: Consider ∫ (3x +2)^{4 }dx
We can use the integration formula of substitution here. Let u = (3x+2) ⇒ du = 3 dx.
Thus ∫ (3x +2)^{4 }dx = 1/3 ∫(u)^{4} du
= 1/3. u^{5 }/5 = u^{5 }/15
= (3x+2)^{5 }/15
Integration by partial fractions formula:
If we need to find the integral of P(x)/Q(x) that is an improper fraction, wherein the degree of P(x) < that of Q(x), then we use integration by partial fractions. We split the fraction using partial fraction decomposition as P(x)/Q(x) = T(x) + P_{1} (x)/ Q(x), where T(x) is a polynomial in x and P_{1} (x)/ Q(x) is a proper rational function. If A, B, and C are the real numbers, then we have the following types of simpler partial fractions that are associated with various types of rational functions.
Form of Rational Fractions  Form of Partial Fractions 

(px + q)/(xa)(x  b)  A/(x  a) + B/ (xb) 
(px + q)/(xa)^{n}  A_{1}/(xa) + A_{2}/(xa)^{2} + .......... A_{n}/(xa)^{n} 
(px^{2} + qx + r)/(ax^{2} + bx + c)  (Ax + B)/(ax^{2} + bx + c) 
(px^{2} + qx + r)/(ax^{2} + bx + c)^{n}  (A_{1}x + B_{1})/(ax^{2} + bx + c) + (A_{2}x + B_{2})/(ax^{2} + bx + c)^{2} + ...(A_{n}x + B_{n})/(ax^{2} + bx + c)^{n} 
(px^{2} + qx + r)/(xa)(xb)(xc)  A/(xa) + B/ (xb) + C/ (xc) 
(px^{2} + qx + r)/ [(xa) (x^{2 }+bx +c)]  A/(xa) + (Bx+C)/(x^{2 }+bx +c) 
For example: ∫ 3x+7/ x^{2 }3x + 2
Resolving it into partial fractions, we get
3x+7/ x^{2 }3x + 2 = A/(x2) + B/ (x1)
= A(x1) + B(x2)/ (x2)(x1)
Equating the numerators, we get 3x +7 = A(x1)+B(x2)
Find B by giving x = 1⇒ 10 = B
Find A by giving x = 2⇒ 13 = A
Thus 3x+7/ x^{2 }3x + 2 = 13/(x2) + 10(x1)
Applying the integration formulas, we get
∫ (3x+7/ x^{2 }3x + 2) = ∫ 13/(x2) + ∫ 10(x1)
∫ (3x+7/ x^{2 }3x + 2) = 13 log x2  10 log x1 + C
Application of Integration Formulas
In general, there are two types of integrals. They are definite and indefinite integrals.
Definite Integration Formula
These are the integrations that have a preexisting value of limits; thus making the final value of integral definite.
∫_{a}^{b} g(x) dx = G(b)  G(a), where g(x) = G'(x).
Indefinite Integration Formula
These are the integrations that do not have a preexisting value of limits; thus making the final value of integral indefinite. Here, C is the integration constant. ∫ g'(x) = g(x) + C
These are followed by the fundamental theorem of calculus.
We apply the integration formulas discussed so far, in approximating the area bounded by the curves, in evaluating the average distance, velocity and accelerationoriented problems, in finding the average value of a function, to approximate the volume and the surface area of the solids, in finding the center of mass and work, in estimating the arc length, in finding the kinetic energy of a moving object using improper integrals.
Let us compute the distance traveled by an object using integration formulas. We know that distance is the definite integral of velocity.
Given: the velocity of an object = v(t)= t^{2 }+ 5t. Let us find the displacement traveled on (1,3).
The initial and the final positions of the object are 1 and 3 respectively. Hence apply the integration formula here with the limits. ∫_{a}^{b} g(x) dx = G(b)  G(a)
∫_{1}^{3} v(t)) dt = v(3)  v(1)
∫_{1}^{3} v(t)= ∫_{1}^{3}(t^{2}) dt +∫_{1}^{3} 5t
= t^{3}/3 + 5t^{2 }/2 _{1}^{3}
= [(27/3  (1/3)) + (45/2  5/2)]
= 34/3
Displacement = 34/3 units.
Let us see how to use the indefinite integration formulas in the following solved examples.
Integration Formulas Examples

Example 1: Find the value of ∫ (9x + 25)/ (x+3)^{2}dx
Solution:
(9x + 25)/ (x+3)^{2} is a rational function.
Using the partial fraction decomposition, we have (9x+ 25)/(x+3)^{2} = A/(x+3) + B/(x+3)^{2}
Taking LCD, we get
(9x + 25)/(x+3)^{2} = [A(x+3) +B]/(x+3)^{2}
Equating the numerator, we get
9x + 25 = A(x+3) +B
Solving for B when x = 3, we get B = 2
Solving for A when x = 0, we get A = 9
Thus the partial fraction is decomposed as 9/(x+3) 2/(x+3)^{2}
As stated in the integration formulas above, find the integral of 9/(x+3) 2/(x+3)^{2}.
∫[9/(x+3)]dx  ∫ 2(x+3)^{2}dx = 9 log(x+3) + 2 /(x+3) +C
Answer: ∫ (9x+ 25)/ (x+3)^{2} dx = 9 log(x+3) + 2 /(x+3) + C

Example 2: Simplify and find the value of ∫ cosec x(cosec x  cot x) dx using the integration formula.
Solution:
∫cosec x(cosec x  cot x) dx
= ∫ cosec^{2}x dx  ∫ cot x cosec x dx
Using the basic trigonometric integration formulas,
= cot x  (cosec x)
= cot x + cosec x
= cosec x  cot x + C
Answer: ∫ cosec x (cosec x  cot x) dx = cosec x  cot x + C

Example 3: Use the integration formula and find the value of ∫(5 + 4cos x)/sin^{2}x dx.
Solution:
∫(5 + 4cos x)/sin^{2}x dx
= ∫5/sin^{2}x. dx +∫4cos x/sin^{2}x dx
= ∫5cosec^{2}x dx + ∫4cot x cosec x dx
= 5∫cosec^{2}x dx + 4∫cot x cosec x dx
Using the trigonometric integration formula, we get
= 5(cot x) + 4(cosec x)
= 5cot x  4cosec x + C
Answer: ∫(5 + 4cos x)/sin^{2}x dx = 5cot x  4cosec x + C.
