    Acid's and Bases

    Homework Statement I was asked to calculate the pH of .40M solution of NH4ClO4 but I wasn't given a Ka for it. Homework Equations The Attempt at a Solution I dissciated NH4ClO4 into: NH4(plus) and ClO4(minus) but I"m stuck there. What am I doing wrong?

    Derivative Problem

    Homework Statement What's the 39th derivative of cosx? Homework Equations 1st dy/dx: -sin x 2nd: -cosx 3rd: sinx 4th; cosx The Attempt at a Solution So it repeats every 4 so I used 39/4 and for a remainder of 3 so is is the 3rd one down? I got sin x but I don't know...

    Impossible problem?

    Homework Statement is( X^2 )y + (Y^2)x = 6, then the second derivative at the point (1,3) is ? Homework Equations The Attempt at a Solution I don't see how this is possible, when I plug in 1 and 3 it comes out as 9 = 6 which isn't true. Can someone tell me if this is wrong? or...

    Simple probem check

    Yes, I did that and sin ^2x + Cos ^2X = 1 so that leaves me with sin^2x - cos^2x, which I have to simplify. I turned that into (- cos^2x + Sin^2x) for simplification purposes. Then I multiplied that whole thing by -1/-1 Which gave me Cos ^2x - Sin ^2x, which simplifies to Cos 2x...

    Problem Check

    SO my final answer will be: pi/4 + 2pi/4? How would I do this for a repeating angle such as: sin x = -1/2 or 1/2 with no limits? since the difference are different. Like pi/6, 5pi/6, 7pi/6. The differences are different.
