    disprove uniform continuety

    i need to prove that \frac{1}{\sqrt{x}} is not uniformly continues in (0,1)



    for epsilon=0.5

    |\frac{1}{\sqrt{x}}-\frac{1}{\sqrt{y}}|=| ]\frac{\sqrt{y}-\sqrt{x}}{\sqrt{xy}}\frac{\sqrt{y}+\sqrt{x}}{\sqrt {y}+\sqrt{x}}| =|\frac{y-x}{(\sqrt{y}-\sqrt{x})\sqrt{xy}}|



    i need to prove that the above exprseesion bigger then 0.5



    but i dont know what x and y to choose

    ?

    Re: disprove uniform continuety

    Consider for each integer n: x_n:=\frac 1n and y_n=\frac 1{2n}. What about |x_n-y_n| and \left|\frac 1{\sqrt{x_n}}-\frac 1{\sqrt{y_n}}\right|?
