Homework Help: Some double integration help

  1. Oct 23, 2005 #1
    Hoping someone can help here. I have to double integrate this:

    And ive been told that the following expressions are useful:

    Now..i can integrate once using the second expression, but then i get stuck. Do i either evaluate the first integration and then integrate whats left over or do i integrate again and then evaluate? If i evaluate straight away i seem to get infinity/infinity - infinity/infinity which is 0, and then the whole expression becomes 0. Which seems a bit silly.

    I cant see how the first expression helps either.

    Hoping someone can give some pointers :(
