Consider the sequence of functions f_n(x) =sin ([2npi)^2+x]^(1/2)) on [0,infinity)

a. Show that lim( n goes to infinity) f_n(x)=0
Hint: Use the mean value theorem for f_n(x) on [0,x]

b. Show that f_n(x) converges uniformly to 0 on [0,a] for a fixed a in [0,infinity).

c. Is it true that f_n(x) converges uniformly to 0 on [0, infinity)? Justify your answer.
