Unformatted text preview: MthSc 108-Learning Activity Section 8.7: Improper Integrals 1. 1 x e dx x- âˆ« Solution: e- x x 1 âˆ« dx = lim a â†’ + e- x x dx a 1 âˆ« Dealing with only the indefinite integral, let u = - x â‡’ du = - 1 2 x dx , so e- x x dx âˆ« = - 2 e u du âˆ« = - 2 e u + C = - 2 e- x + C â‡’ lim a â†’ o + e- x x dx = lim a â†’ o +- 2 e- x a 1 = a 1 âˆ« lim a â†’ o +- 2 e- 1 + 2 e- a = - 2 e + 2 e = 2- 2 e So the improper integral converges to 2- 2 e . 2. 2 2 2 1 dt t âˆž- âˆ« Solution 1: 2 t 2- 1 dt 2 âˆž âˆ« = lim b â†’âˆž 2 t 2- 1 2 b âˆ« = lim b â†’âˆž 2 t- 1 ( ) t + 1 ( ) dt 2 b âˆ« Dealing with only the indefinite integral, we must find a PFD. 2 t- 1 ( ) t + 1 ( ) = A t- 1 + B t + 1 â‡’ 2 = A + B ( ) t + A- B â‡’ A + B = A- B = 2 â‡’ A = 1, B = - 1 â‡’ 2 t- 1 ( ) t + 1 ( ) âˆ« = 1 t- 1 dt âˆ«- 1 t + 1 dt âˆ« = ln t- 1- ln t + 1 + C = ln t- 1 t + 1 + C â‡’ lim b â†’âˆž 2 t- 1 ( ) t + 1 ( ) dt 2 b âˆ« = lim b â†’âˆž ln t- 1 t + 1 2 b = lim b â†’âˆž ln b- 1 b...
