MA.912.C.1.3

Find limits of rational functions that are undefined at a point.

Examples

The magnitude of the force between two positive charges, begin mathsize 14px style q subscript 1 end style and begin mathsize 14px style q subscript 2 end style, can be described by the following function: begin mathsize 12px style F left parenthesis r right parenthesis space equals space k fraction numerator q subscript 1 q subscript 2 over denominator r squared end fraction end style, where k is Coulomb’s constant and r is the distance between the two charges. Find the limit as r approaches 0 of the function F(r). interpret the answer in terms of the context.
