Corollary to Primitive of Cosine Function

$\displaystyle \int \cos a x \rd x = \frac {\sin a x} a + C$

where $C$ is an arbitrary constant.


Proof

\(\displaystyle \int \cos x \rd x\) \(=\) \(\displaystyle \sin x + C\) Primitive of $\cos x$
\(\displaystyle \leadsto \ \ \) \(\displaystyle \int \cos a x \rd x\) \(=\) \(\displaystyle \frac 1 a \paren {\sin a x} + C\) Primitive of Function of Constant Multiple
\(\displaystyle \) \(=\) \(\displaystyle \frac {\sin a x} a + C\) simplifying

$\blacksquare$
