$\displaystyle \lim_{n\to\infty}\int_{0}^{\sqrt{n}}\left(1-\frac{\left x^2\right}{n}\right )^{n}dx$

i couldn't tackle it

thanks for now.

Do you know the dominated convergence theorem?

It can be useful the substitution $\displaystyle t=x/\sqrt{n}$, so $\displaystyle \int_{0}^{\sqrt{n}}(1-x^2/n)^n\;dx=\sqrt{n}\int_{0}^{1}(1-t^2)^n\;dt$ .
