[QUESTION] What is: ʃ 1/(θ - θ') dθ between θ1 and θ2?

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

What is: ʃ 1/(θ - θ'{theta prime}) dθ between θ1 and θ2?

θ' is not a constant

2. Relevant equations

NA

3. The attempt at a solution

I fail to understand how to deal with the " (θ - θ') " thingy. So I haven't made an attempt.

θ' is just some constant (hopefully not between θ1 and θ2). Integrate it the same way you'd integrate 1/(x-C) dx.

θ' is just a constant as far as the integration is concerned. Treat it just as you would a in this integral:
$$\int_{\theta_1}^{\theta_2}\frac{d\theta}{\theta - a}$$
