Test the following improper integral for convergence:

The integral converges.

*Proof.* We know the integral converges (example #1 on page 417 of Apostol). Applying the limit comparison test (by the note to Theorem 10.25 on page 418, which says that if then the convergence of implies the convergence of .) we have

Since we know converges the theorem establishes the convergence of

Sorry, but integral of q/x^{3/2} do not converge from 0 to infinity, but from 1 to infinity. It seems you need to split the integral in two: one from zero to 1 (converges because its a proper integral), and 1 to infinity (converges because of the comparison limit test).

Is that ok?

However, when you split the integral, the integral of x^(-3/2) between 0 and 1 diverges because this integral is not well defined on 0 and it’s limit diverges.
