Two problems:

(1) nPi is not the same as n Pi (similarly for mPi).

(2) the first link shows input and output in TraditionalForm, where Sin is  
diplayed as sin. The Mathematica NAME of the function, however, is Sin.

Integrate[2 x Sin[n Pi x/L] Sin[m Pi x/L], x]

(1/(\[Pi]^2))L ((
    L Cos[((m - n) \[Pi] x)/L] + (m - n) \[Pi] x Sin[((m - n) \[Pi] x)/
       L])/(m - n)^2 - (
    L Cos[((m + n) \[Pi] x)/L] + (m + n) \[Pi] x Sin[((m + n) \[Pi] x)/
       L])/(m + n)^2)
