Don't know integrals so much

    What is the integral of:

    [tex]dt= \frac{dr}{\sqrt{2\frac{GM}{r}+ 2C}}[/tex]​

    where C is a constant?

    I need to integrate this, but I don't know integrals so much. Thanks :rolleyes:

    For simplicity, reduce your questions to general ones with as few constants as possible. (you can plug in whatever the specific constants are later). Are you asking how to compute:

    [tex]\int \frac{dx}{\sqrt{1+a/x}} [/tex]?

    If so, try the substitution [itex]u=\sqrt{1+a/x}[/tex].
