In this article, we demonstrate the applicability of the integrating factor method to path equation describing minimum drag work, and a special Hamiltonian equation corresponding Riemann zeros for obtaining the first integrals. The effectiveness and powerfullness of this method is verified by applying it for two selected second-order nonlinear ordinary differential equations (NLODEs). As a result integrating factors and first integrals for them are succesfully established. The obtained results show that the integrating factor approach can also be applied to other NLODEs.
