Problem: Evaluate (if it converges)

Solution: There is just one problem, the infinity. So we immediately apply the cut-off and limit procedure:

In case you do not remember how to integrate the general exponential, use substitution:

Note that in general we can say the following: If a > 1, then the integral converges. We may add it to our scale of favourite test functions.
