Let $V=\{f:[-\pi,\pi]\to\mathbb{R}| f\text{ continuous}\}$ with:

$$f\times g=\int_{-\pi}^{\pi}f(x)g(x)dx$$

Show that $\forall f \in V$:

$$\left|\int_{-\pi}^{\pi}f(x)\sin(x)dx\right|\leq\sqrt{\pi}\sqrt{\int_{-\pi}^\pi f^2(x)dx}$$

I tried showing this with the abosolute value property of the integral:


but it didn't work out.. any ideas?



Use the Cauchy–Bunyakovsky–Schwarz inequality.
