Limit calculation

Is it even possible to solve this limit expression?

Of course it is, it's just the ratio of polynomials in $p$. I think it goes to $\pm\infty$ depending on whether you take the left- or right- sided limit and depending on the value of the constant $a_3$.

The numerator behaves like $\displaystyle 2a_3p^2$ and the denominator behaves like $\displaystyle kp^3$, so the ratio becomes infinite, as p -> 0.
