To evaluate the definite integral [ \int_{1}^{8} \sqrt{\frac{2}{x}} , dx ]

We can rewrite the integral as: [ \int_{1}^{8} 2x^{-\frac{1}{2}} , dx ]

Now, integrate with respect to ( x ): [ \int 2x^{-\frac{1}{2}} , dx = 2 \int x^{-\frac{1}{2}} , dx ]

Integrate ( x^{-\frac{1}{2}} ) with respect to ( x ): [ \int x^{-\frac{1}{2}} , dx = \int x^{-\frac{1}{2}} \cdot x^1 , dx = \int x^{\frac{1}{2}-1} , dx ]

This gives: [ \int x^{-\frac{1}{2}} , dx = 2x^{\frac{1}{2}} + C ]

Now, evaluate the definite integral from 1 to 8: [ \int_{1}^{8} 2x^{-\frac{1}{2}} , dx = \left[ 2x^{\frac{1}{2}} \right]_{1}^{8} ]

[ = 2(8^{\frac{1}{2}}) - 2(1^{\frac{1}{2}}) ] [ = 2(2\sqrt{2}) - 2(1) ] [ = 4\sqrt{2} - 2 ]

So, [ \int_{1}^{8} \sqrt{\frac{2}{x}} , dx = 4\sqrt{2} - 2 ]

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
