The domain of this function is all real numbers greater than or equal to zero.  The range is 2 to + infinity.
 
Negative real numbers are excluded from the domain because the square root of a negative number is not real.   The minimum value of the function occurs at x = 0  and has the value 2.   The 2 x term ensures that the upper end of the range is + infinity.
