Hello there, I've not been here in a while, but I'm stuck doing this integration and wondered if some of you kind people would help(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex]\int_0^\infty \frac{1} {(1+x)\sqrt{x}} dx[/tex]

(appologies for the lack of spacing in there...)

anyways, I know that when x tends to infinity, the integral can be approximated to,

[tex]\int_0^\infty \frac{1} {(x)\sqrt{x}} dx[/tex]

but I cant seem to find this identity in any of my tables anywhere...

The reason I need it is because I'm in the processes of writing some c code to analytically calculate this with a specified degree of acuracy, (am going to use the trapezium method of integration I think) so it would be nice to know if the answers I get out of it are any good or not!

thanks for you time
