# In Problems 1-20, evaluate the improper integrals that converge. 11.   ∫ − ∞ − 1 10 x 2   d x

To determine

To calculate: The value of the improper integral 110x2dx if it converges.

Explanation

Given Information:

The provided integral is,

110x2dx

Formula used:

According to the power rule of integrals,

xndx=xn+1n+1+C

If the limit defining the improper integral is a unique finite number, then integral converges else it diverges,

bf(x)dx=limaabf(x)dx

Calculation:

Consider the provided integral,

110x2dx

Now, use the formula,

bf(x)dx=limaabf(x)dx

To rewrite the integral as,

110x2dx=limaa110x2
