Evaluate the integral:

{eq}\displaystyle \int \frac{sin^3\ \theta}{cos\ \theta - 1}\ d \theta {/eq}


Evaluate the integral:

{eq}\displaystyle \int \frac{sin^3\ \theta}{cos\ \theta - 1}\ d \theta {/eq}

Indefinite Integral:

The given integral is evaluated by substitution method, the integral is transformed into one form to another form by changing the variable. Consider the function {eq}\int {f\left( x \right)} dx {/eq}, then by assuming {eq}x = g\left( t \right), and \dfrac{{dx}}{{dt}} = g'\left( t \right) {/eq}, or {eq}dx = g'\left( t \right)dt {/eq}. The integral becomes, {eq}\int {f\left( x \right)} dx = \int {f\left[ {g\left( t \right)} \right]} g'\left( t \right)dt {/eq}.
