\(\int_0^{\frac{\pi}{2}} sin^2x\,cos^4x\,dx\)


(∵ \(\int_0^{\frac{\pi}{2}} sin^m\theta\,cos^n\theta\,d\theta\) = \(\frac{\Gamma(\frac{m+1}{2})\Gamma(\frac{n+1}{2})}{2\Gamma{(\frac{m+n+2}{2})}}\))


\(\frac{\frac{1}{2}\Gamma(\frac{1}{2})\times \frac{3}{2}\times \frac{1}{2}\Gamma(\frac{1}{2})}{2\times 3!}\)

(∵ \(\Gamma(n+1)\) = n\(\Gamma\)(n),n>0 & \(\Gamma\)(n+1) = n!, n∈N)

\(\frac{3}{8}\) x \(\frac{\sqrt{\pi}\times {\sqrt\pi}}{2\times 6}\) 



\(\int_0^{\frac{\pi}{2}} sin^2x\,cos^4x\,dx\) = \(\frac{\pi}{32}\).
