I want to calculate the antiderivative of this function .

$\displaystyle f(x)=\frac{\sqrt{\sin x-\sin^3x}}{\sqrt{1-\sin^3x}}dx$

let $\sqrt {\sin x-sin^3x}=\sqrt{\sin x} .|\cos x|$ then I have :

$\displaystyle\int \frac{\sqrt{\sin x} .|\cos x|}{\sqrt{1-\sin^3x}}dx$ , then Assume $\cos x > 0$ and if i take $t= \sin x$ and then using inverse function of sin it will be complicated , then is there any simple method to Evaluate it ?

  • $\begingroup$ Use the square root of $(1-\sin{x})$ as a common factor of both the top and bottom. $\endgroup$ Feb 7, 2018 at 20:51

As you pointed out

$$\int\frac{\sqrt{\sin x-\sin^3x}}{\sqrt{1-\sin^3x}}dx$$

$$=\int\frac{\sqrt{\sin x(1-\sin^2x)}}{\sqrt{1-\sin^3x}}dx$$

$$=\int\frac{\sqrt{\sin x}\cos(x)}{\sqrt{1-\sin^3x}}dx$$

Let $u=\sin(x),$ then we get
