Homework Help: Limits of a fourier integral

  1. Dec 6, 2011 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    3. The attempt at a solution

    When I do the integral of this function I'm unsure of what the limits are. Anyone care to help? Thanks

    Sure thing, just forgot to include it.
    I'd use latex but it's just quicker this way...

    Well f(x)=0 for [itex]x\leq 0[/itex], so the part of the integral from [itex]-\infty[/itex] to 0 vanishes, right??

    So that would leave us with?

    Oh I get ya, so the lower limit is 0 and the upper limit is [itex]-\infty[/itex]?

    I guess you mean + for the upper limit, but yeah.

    Sorry for the double post here, I mean the upper limit is [itex]\infty[/itex]
