Learn how to use integration by parts to evaluate integrals where the integrand is a product of functions

Key Points

Integration by Parts is for evaluating integrals written as a product of functions

It is similar to the product rule for derivatives

The key is assigning the correct function as ‘u’ and ‘v’

Sometimes you will have to repeat the integration by parts as the integral in the first round will also need to be integrated by parts

Integration by parts works for both indefinite and definite integrals
