(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

compute

I=∫_2^∞ (1/(x(x-2)^.5)) dx

using the calculus of residues. be sure to choose an appropriate contour and to explain what happens on each part of that contour.

2. Relevant equations

transform to a complex integral

I= ∮ (1/(z(z-2)^.5)) dz

3. The attempt at a solution

i don't even know where to really begin. i keep ending up dividing by zero
