### Example Question #31 : Improper Integrals

Evaluate

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

Since is not an actual number, this is an improper integral. Therefore we have to rewrite it as a limit.

We replaced the improper bound, , with a new variable, t. Then the limit will allow us to evalute the integral as this new bound, t, approaches .

Now we can evaluate the integral normally.

Then we evaluate the limit.

Thus the answer is .

### Example Question #32 : Improper Integrals

Classify each improper integral as convergent or divergent.

A)

B)

C)

**Possible Answers:**

A) Diverges

B) Diverges

C) Converges

A) Converges

B) Converges

C) Diverges

A) Converges

B) Diverges

C) Converges

A) Diverges

B) Converges

C) Converges

A) Converges

B) Converges

C) Converges

**Correct answer:**

A) Diverges

B) Diverges

C) Converges

**A) **

Write the integral as a limit,

Because we know that the natural logarithm is an increasing function, it blows up as , therefore **(A) **is divergent.

**B) **

Write as a limit,

We can use a substitution to integrate,

Now write the indefinite integral in terms of .

This limit does not exist, and therefore the integral diverges.

**C)**

Recall that improper integrals of the form will converge if and will diverge if provided that .

In this case we** **have . Therefore **(C) **Converges.

The Laplace Transform therefore becomes:

### Example Question #31 : Improper Integrals

Evaluate the following improper integral:

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

To evaluate an improper integral, we first evaluate it with a finite quantity *a* in place of negative infinity:

Now, we take the limit of this quantity as a approaches negative infinity:
