Periodic functions for the definite integral

Considering this question where there is this integral:

$$int_{0}^{4pi} ln|13sin x+3sqrt3
cos x|mathrm dx tag 1$$

Easily all the periodic function $$a’sin(x)+bcos(x)+c=0 tag 2$$ can be written as:

$$Asin(x+phi)+c=0, A=sqrt{a’^2+b^2}quad text{ or }quad Acos(x+varphi)+c=0tag 3$$
where $phi, varphi=arctan ldots$ are angles definited in radians, hence $inBbb R$.
Reading the comments of the user @Sangchul Lee, I think that $|sin(x)|$ is a even-function and $pi-$periodic,

$$int_{0}^{4pi} ln|13sin x+3sqrt3
cos x|,mathrm{d}x=4int_{0}^{pi}ln| Asin(x+phi)|,mathrm{d}x=4int_{0}^{pi}ln(A| sin(x+phi)|),mathrm{d}x$$

  1. Why $phi$ vanished? It is true if $phi=Kpi$, with $KinBbb Z$. I not remember this now.
  2. Considering the comment "Let $f:mathbb R→mathbb R$ be $T$-periodic and integrable on any finite interval then
    $∫_0^Tf(x)dx=∫_0^Tf(x+a)dx$" when is it useful, for a periodic function,


and if are there general rules (or what is it happen) for the limits of the integral of a generic periodic function?

where $C=C(lambda)$ (upper bound) or $C=C(mu)$ (lower bound) is a real constant.

We have $13^2+27=14^2$, so $$ 13sin(x)+3sqrt{3}cos(x) = 14sin(x+varphi),qquad varphi=arctanfrac{3sqrt{3}}{13}notinpimathbb{Z} $$ and $$begin{eqnarray*}int_{0}^{4pi}logleft|13sin(x)+3sqrt{3}cos(x)right|,dx &=& 4pilog(14)+int_{0}^{4pi}logleft|sin xright|,dx\&=&4pilog(14)+4int_{0}^{pi}logsin(x),dxend{eqnarray*}$$ where $$begin{eqnarray*} I=int_{0}^{pi}logsin(x),dx &=& 2int_{0}^{pi/2}logsin(2z),dz\&=&pilog(2)+2int_{0}^{pi/2}logsin(z),dz+2int_{0}^{pi/2}logcos(z),dz\&=&pilog(2)+2Iend{eqnarray*}$$ leads to $$int_{0}^{4pi}logleft|13sin(x)+3sqrt{3}cos(x)right|,dx =4pilog(14)-4pilog(2) = color{red}{4pilog(7)}.$$
