Hello everyone,
I want to evaluate the above integral by hand. It is from a question in Griffiths Introduction to Electrodynamics. Can you explain how to do step by step?
P.S: I did it with Wolframalpha but failed to understand it since it gave the desired answer for restricted values of x and h values. What does that mean by the way?
Thanks in advance
Yes thanks for your help but I am stuck after these step, I cannot find the integral I might be doing something wrong here is my work:
Edit:I have added the original solution I think something is wrong there with the natural logarithm part.
Thanks for your help, but I am still unable to understand the fourth line in the picture I have attached. Because my solution expression before the evaluation of the integral does not match the solution printed on the manual. I got h in the demoninator inside ln, whereas the solution manual does not have any h in the denominator inside ln function. What may be the reason behind that? Is it possible to reach the answer using different indefinite integrals? Can someone provide the skipped steps?
