Integral of sec x - the circular function of an angle. how to find the antiderivative sec x and other useful information.
Secx or secant of x can be written in various forms such as, sec, cosec, and or cot can be defined as a trigonometric function like, sin, cos and tan. Forms of secx include the following: sec x = 1cos x cosec x 1sin x cot x = 1tan x = cos x sin x Secant can as well be obtained from complex number: secx = 2/[e^(ix) + e^(-ix)], where i is the imaginary unit that equals to sqrt (-1). In contrast to cos(x), finding the antiderivative of secant of x needs few calculus tricks. Moreover, the antiderivative of secx has many identical forms that can puzzle students who want to see how good they are at computing.
