    Integral calculation

    Hi,

    This is the first time I post here. I hope I will do everything correctly

    I would like to know how to calculate this expression:

    \int_{a}^{b} \frac{x^2-1}{(x^2+y^2+z^2)^{5/2}}dx

    I am pretty sure it exists a kind of method for it.

    Thanks in advance.

    put a^2=y^2+z^2, it's a constant, since you're integrating w.r.t. x.
