What is the natural log of zero?
This is a tricky question because you do not have a unique answer...I mean, you do not have an answer such as: "the result is 3".
The problem here rests in the definition of log:
so basically with the log you are looking for a certain exponent that when you rise the base to it gives you the integrand.
Now, in your case you have:
But how do you find the right
Actually it doesn't work...you cannot find it...you cannot rise to the power of a number and get zero!
If you try with a positive
One thing you can do is to manipulate it to get as near as possible to zero...
if you take a negative exponent you can get almost there:
So I would say that
