p(r) is proportional too (1/r)Exp(-r/R). r is the variable.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm trying to normalise this function (R is proton radius), so I'm trying to get the integral between infinity and -infinity = 1 so I can find the normalisation constant. I don't know how to do this integral I've tried by parts but it seems there are discontuinities. I'm probably missing something obvious, can sombody point me on the right track?
