Finding lim t->0

  1. Oct 16, 2013 #1
    Hi all,

    If we have




    [itex]a>0, k>0, [/itex] and [itex]H(0)=0[/itex],

    can we say anything about [itex]{lim}_{r\rightarrow 0^+}\tau(r)[/itex]?

    Thanks a lot!

    Sure you can.
    Note - the trouble with evaluating the limit just by putting r=0 is the 0/0 in the second term right?
    So what role would the slope of H play in reconciling this problem?

    Yes, that fraction is the problem.

    I tried to solve it with l'Hopital's rule, but just got into a recursion, as expected...
