Calculate the ∫ (from pi/2 to pi) sin(x)/1+cos^2(x).

First find the ∫ sin(x)dx/1+cos^2(x).

Let cosx =t

dt/dx =-sinx

-dt =sinx dx

∫ sin(x)dx/1+cos^2(x). =∫ -dt/1+t^2



Calculate the definite integration using the fundamental theorem of intehration.

∫ (from pi/2 to pi) sin(x)/1+cos^2(x).=(from pi/2 to pi)( -tan^-1(cosx))




                                                     = pi/4
