If it is, try to simplify the denominator before trying to take the integral.

So, is your integral## Homework Statement

∫dr/√((1/(R+r))-(1/R))

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

[tex] \int \frac{dr}{\sqrt{\frac{1}{R+r}-\frac{1}{R}}} ? [/tex]

If so, re-write it by first expressing

[tex] \frac{1}{R+r}-\frac{1}{R} [/tex]

as a simple rational expression. You should end up with an integrand of the form

[tex] \sqrt{\frac{ar+b}{cr+d}}. [/tex]
