I seriously doubt it's possible. Why do you think a closed form exists in the first place?

Because it was asked in an examination :P (the exact way is given in this question)

@Deeparaj Bhat – The point of that question is to find the integer part of the numerical value of that integral, not the exact form of the integral.

@Pi Han Goh – I know. But many times, they give stuff whose closed form can be found using out of syllabus stuff but we're expected to get bounds via elementary methods. So, I was curious...

@Deeparaj Bhat – Don't worry about it. There are infinitely many integrals that don't have a closed form.
