Hi all,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm working through Chandrasekhar's Stochastic Problems in Physics and Astronomy and can not understand the steps to progress through Eq. (66) in Chapter 1. The integral is:

[tex]\prod^{N}_{j=1} \frac{1}{l^{3}_{j}|\rho|}\int^{\infty}_{0} sin(|\rho|r_{j})r_{j}\delta (r^{2}_{j}-l^{2}_{j})dr_{j} = \prod^{N}_{j=1} \frac{sin(|\rho|l_{j})}{|\rho|l_{j}}[/tex]

Could anyone show the steps on how this result was obtained? I am aware of how to simplify a dirac delta that is composed of a function, but it does not lead me to the above result. Thanks.
