By the exponential going to zero faster than the power -> the limit does exist, and you should be able to remove the singularity.

In fact - I found that I can that by splitting x^-0.5 = x^0.5 * x^-2. Then use integration by parts. Letting dv = 1/x^2 * exp(-A/x) then you can easily integrate to find v.

Thanks for the help.
