    When can one Change order of derivatives?

    Here is an example... d/dz(dp/dx) = d/dx(dp/dz) I dont remember learning this in my calculus or differential equations classes unless it was called something else.

    Weight before/after change in rotation Speed

    Yes, I understand that F=ma = 0 since the person will not move. Now the three terms that come into play... would the centrifugal force help at all since the earth is rotating?

    Double Integrals Limits of Integration

    I am just starting to do double integrals and came acorss an issue. I remembered from single integrals when we integrate from limits for say -1 to 1, we can double it and change integration limits to 0 to 1. Now, when is this the case? Basically, when can we not do this?

    Finding a relationship using 1st Law of Thermodynamics

    After posting this, I found something, why not divide both sides by T, that will give us the relationship the question wanted right?
