The question says show that the average value of k is [tex]k_0[/tex] for the function [tex]A(k)=\frac{1}{\sqrt{2\pi}a}e^{\frac{-(k-k_0)^2}{2a^2}[/tex].(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I know that this is a gaussian function and that the center is k0 but i am not sure how to show this is the average value of k, what equation for average value would i evaluate. is it some kind of integral? and are the limits + and - infinity?
