(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

Ive solved it this way:

= [ln |x|]^{1}_{-2}= ln 1 - ln 2 = -ln2

However the solutions say the integral is divergent, therefore it should tend to +∞ or -∞

If someone could tell me what I've done wrong I'd appreciate!

Thanks
