Homework Help: Maxwell-Boltzmann Statistics integral

  1. Sep 29, 2013 #1
    Hey guys, I have this homework to do, but I can't find a solution.
    I need to solve this integral. It's Maxwell-Boltzmann Statistics, we are studying it in class of electronics. So, integral goes like this:
    ∫from Ws to ∞ [(W-Ws)(1/2)*e(WF-W)/kT]dW

    I have looked it up on google, but I couldn't find the solution..
    And, WF,Ws,k and T are constants...
    I'll be grateful.

    You can try wolfram alpha but for the definite integral they'll charge you & the indefinite integral isn't of much help I don't think ...

    I tried using WolframAlpha, it gives me some result, and it's the right result, but I need the procedure..

    I don't know about that, man.. Professor gave us a "hint", he told us we need to use partial integration method.
