Now then, im close to shedding a tear with this one.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

This integral has been popping up in a few electromag examples iv been doing and i have absolutely no idea whats going on here.

The integral is 1/[(x^{2}+z^{2})^{3/2}] with respect to x

According to the textbook the answer is x/[z^{2}(x^{2}+z^{2})^{1/2}]

I initially, without evening really thinking, went straight for -1/(x[x^{2}+z^{2}]^{1/2})

Any ideas?

Thanks
