    integration help!

    This is a very simple technique that i often confuse myself on. I need to integrate (1-u^2)/sqrt(u)... i would think make the sqrt(u) to u^-1/2 but not sure how to take it from here if this is even right... thanks for everyone who looks at this and helps!

    Re: integration help!

    \frac{1-u^2}{\sqrt{u}} = u^{-\frac{1}{2}} - u^{\frac{3}{2}}

    antiderivative ...

    2u^{\frac{1}{2}} - \frac{2}{5} u ^{\frac{5}{2}} + C
    Thanks from rchrist3
