```I think that the problem was that I was triyn to integrate in cos[Ttheta],
which is a funtion and not a variable, as it was underlined in the previous
In the same post they suggested me to change

d Cos[Ttheta]

into

-sin[Ttheta]dTtheta

in order to have a valid integration variable. In this case I have to change
the interval of integration from [-1,1] that I had before (referring to
cos[Ttheta])
) to [0,Pi] (which is the equivalent for the Thata angle).
