Find the value of $\lim_{n \rightarrow \infty} \Big( 1-\frac{1}{\sqrt 2} \Big) \cdots \Big(1-\frac{1}{\sqrt {n+1}} \Big)$ [duplicate]

This question already has an answer here:

$$\lim_{n \rightarrow \infty} \Big( 1-\dfrac{1}{\sqrt 2} \Big) \cdots \Big(1-\dfrac{1}{\sqrt {n+1}} \Big)$$

Attempt:

Let $y = \lim_{n \rightarrow \infty} \Big( 1-\dfrac{1}{\sqrt 2} \Big) \cdots \Big(1-\dfrac{1}{\sqrt {n+1}} \Big)$

$\ln y = \lim_{n \rightarrow \infty} \ln \Big( 1-\dfrac{1}{\sqrt 2} \Big)+ \cdots + \ln \Big(1-\dfrac{1}{\sqrt {n+1}} \Big)$

I am not able to move ahead really from here. Could someone give me an hint on how to move forward with this problem.

Thank you very much for your help in this regard.

All the factors are positive, but bounded by the last one. Thus, for all $n$ the product is between $0$ and $(1-1/\sqrt{n+1})^n$. What happens with that expression as $n\to+\infty$?

• The limit is $0$, or the sequence tends to $0$. – GEdgar Apr 30 '15 at 12:28
