    ..Try using integration by parts and see if you can solve

    u=[itex]\frac{1}{U}[/itex] find du/dx
    [itex]\frac{dv}{dx}=\frac{1}{\sqrt{1-U^2}}[/itex] so get v=


    [tex]\int u\frac{dv}{dx}dx=uv-\int v\frac{du}{dx}dx[/tex]

    It can be done straightforwardly with a trig substitution, like u=sin(t).

    What is the term for the slope on an x axis that runs parallel but never actually touches the x axis?

    Get your own thread. But until you do 'horizontal asymptote with y value 0'.
