You need to evaluate f(t), hence, you need to solve the definite integral `int_1^(t^2)(sqrt(5+u^4))/u du` such that:
`u^4 =v => 4u^3du = dv => du = (dv)/(4u^3)`
`int (sqrt(5+u^4))/u du = int (sqrt(5+v))/u(dv)/(4u^3) `
`int (sqrt(5+v))/(4u^4) dv = (1/4)int (sqrt(5+v))/v(dv)`
You should consider the next substitution such that:
`sqrt(5+v) = s => s^2 = 5+v => v = s^2-5`
`1/(2sqrt(5+v))dv = ds => dv = 2sqrt(5+v)ds => dv = 2s ds`
`(1/4)int (sqrt(5+v))/v(dv) = (1/2)int s^2/(s^2-5)ds`
You need to subtract and add 5 to numerator such that:
`int (s^2-5+5)/(s^2-5)ds `
Using the property of linearity yields:
`int (s^2-5+5)/(s^2-5)ds = int (s^2-5)/(s^2-5)ds + int (5)/(s^2-5)ds `
`int (s^2-5+5)/(s^2-5)ds = int ds + 5 ln|(s-5)/(s+5)| + c`
`(1/2)int s^2/(s^2-5)ds = s/2 +...
