Ok, so I was doing a problem on the electric field strength of a continuous charge distribution and I arrived at this seemingly easy integral

[tex] \int \frac{1}{({l^2+a^2})^\frac{3}{2}} dl[/tex]

sorry the latex is lagging badly, you can see the correct integral by clicking on it. it is 1/l squared + a squared with the denominator to the power of 3/2.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I do not know how to solve this.... at all, and I am pretty sure that this integral is correct.
