Please help required with this integral:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

(x/(x-a))^0.5 where "a" is a start distance of 10^-3 and the final distance needs to be 10^-2

It looks simple but its not.

Wolfram integrator gave this answer:

Integrate[(x/(x - a))^0.5, x] ==

(0.*(x/(-a + x))^0.5*(-a + x)^0.5)/x^0.5 + (2.*(x/(-a + x))^0.5*(-a + x)^0.5*(-1.*a + x)^0.5* Hypergeometric2F1[0.5, -0.5, 1.5, 1. - (1.*x)/a])/ (0. + x/a)^0.5

Which is way way over my head. Is there a simpler solution?
