    How to determine force using a measured current

    I don't think I can show you a diagram, but I can try to explain it better: I am applying force to a lorentz force motor which has a displacement transducer in it which produces a change in current when the height of the motor increases and decreases (you put your foot onto the plate of the...

    How to determine force using a measured current

    Hi, I'm trying to calibrate a voltage divider circuit to measure force. I have measured the current output at two different weights, converted the weights to forces using "f=mg" and calulated a gradient from that using "y = mx + c" as well as the constant. However, I don't feel what I did...

    Proof of transformational symmetry

    Homework Statement Using indical notation, prove that D retains it's symmetry when transformed into any other coordinate system, i.e. D'_{pq} = D'_{qp} (where D is a symmetric 2nd order tensor) Homework Equations D'_{pq} = a_{pr}a_{qs}D_{rs} (law of transformation for 2nd order tensors)...

    Orthogonality of Sine and Cosine functions

    Hi, would anyone be able to explain how to evaluate a function using orthogonality (i.e. using orthogonality to solve a definite integration problem with sines/cosines)? Thank you

    The path of crossing a stream

    Hi, was the hypotenuse correct? Because if I did it via Pythagoras, it yields an equation which I do not think is equal. \sqrt{(W-x)^{2}+y^{2}}
