According to W|A, it's $\displaystyle \frac13\sqrt{\frac{2\pi}{3}}$.

also, if square root is replaced by cube root what will be the solution?

Have you tried using a substitution?

Using $x = e^{-u^2}$, where $u\geqslant0$, so that $dx = -2ue^{-u^2}du$, one gets

$\displaystyle \int_\infty^0\! -2u^2e^{-3u^2/2}du = -(2/3)\!\int_0^\infty\! -3u^2e^{-3u^2/2}du$.

Using integration by parts, with $v = e^{-(3/2)u^2}$, so that $dv = -3ue^{-(3/2)u^2}du$, one gets

$\displaystyle -(2/3)\left[ue^{-(3/2)u^2}\right]_0^\infty + (2/3)\!\int_0^\infty\! e^{-(3/2)u^2}du = (2/3)\!\int_0^\infty\! e^{-(3/2)u^2}du$.

If $u = \sqrt{\frac23}t$, so that $du = \sqrt{\frac23}dt$, one gets $\frac23\sqrt{\frac23}$ $\displaystyle \!\int_0^\infty\! e^{-t^2}dt$.

It's well known that $\displaystyle \!\int_0^\infty\! e^{-t^2}dt = \small\frac{\sqrt\pi}{2}$.
