# Limit Problem

Can anyone help with these?

1. $$\lim_{n\rightarrow 0}\frac{\log_{2}\sum_{k=1}^{2^n}\sqrt{k}}{n}$$

2. $$\lim_{n\rightarrow 0}\frac{\log_{2}\sum_{k=1}^{2^n}\sqrt{2k-1}}{n}$$

Thanks for you help.

Regarding just the first one:

Although I question this, Mathematica returns:

$$\mathop \lim\limits_{n\to 0}\frac{Ln[\sum_{k=1}^{2^n}\sqrt{k}]}{n}\approx 0.8527$$

Seems to me that it should be $-\infty$

Since once n gets below 1, the sum goes to just 1.

$$\mathop \lim\limits_{n\to \infty}\frac{Ln[\sum_{k=1}^{2^n}\sqrt{k}]}{n}$$
