    Welcome to PF!

    Hi birdhen! Welcome to PF! :smile:

    (have an integral: ∫ and a square-root: √ and an omega: ω :smile:)

    Hint: multiply top and bottom by a (to get rid of the nasty inverses :frown:), and then complete the square …

    in other words, put the bracket into the form something2 ± a constant. :smile:
