Converting $\ln|x| = h$ to $x = e^h$

In Kreyszig’s Advanced Engineering Mathematics, section on First-Order ODEs, it is written: $ dF/F = p \, dx $ $ \ln|F| = h = \int p \, dx $ Therefore, $ F = e^h$ However I don’t understand why the absolute value for $F$ is gone. To my understanding, a simplified version of this could […]
