    Problem with open circuit

    Okay. In that case, there's no current in the bottom wire either? (Nodes connecting the negative ends of 7 and 2 ohm resistors)

    Problem with open circuit

    Homework Statement Find the value of v1, v2, vab, vbc, vca. See picture Homework Equations Kirchoff's Law The Attempt at a Solution Is it true that both current through 3 and 4 ohm resistors are zero? The way I think of this is if they aren't zero, there would be charge building up at a...

    Proving subset of a Nullspace

    Ok I think I got it. to prove that if ##x \in N(A)## then ##x \in N(A^t A)##. ##x \in N(A)##. By definition, ##Ax = 0## therefore ##A^t A x = 0## which means ##x \in N(A^t A)## as well. Therefore ##N(A) \subset N(A^t A)##. Thanks a lot jbunniii.

    Proving subset of a Nullspace

    x ε N(A) iff Ax = 0 and since A^t A x = 0 then x ε N(A^t A). Therefore x belongs to both N(A) and N(A^t A). Is this correct?

    Proving subset of a Nullspace

    Homework Statement Given matrix A (size m x n), prove N(A) is subset of N( A^t A). A^t is matrix A transposed. Homework Equations The Attempt at a Solution My assumption is m < n, using definition of nullspace, I ended up with N( A^t A) = a set of zero vector, while N(A) is...

    Find work done in stretching rubber band

    I am sorry, but in this case, are you saying that my prof's limit of integration is correct? I understand that you need reference length for the force to be acting, but putting the initial limit of integration as something other than 0 would mean that you have stretched it beyond its natural...

    Find work done in stretching rubber band

    No substitution were made. He did it everything the same way except for the limits of integration. How can I explain to him?

    Find work done in stretching rubber band

    Homework Statement Please see attachment. Homework Equations The Attempt at a Solution Not really a homework problem. This is 1 of my exam question which I believe I had the right answer but my professor insists that he has the right one. I started by equating work done, W =...

    Difference between unique solution and particular solution

    Homework Statement For 1st order linear ordinary differential equation, how do "unique solution" and "particular solution" differ? Homework Equations if dy/dx = f(x,y) and partial f(x,y) with respect to y are both continuous, then there exists a unique solution within a region R...

    Separable Differential Equation Question

    Homework Statement dy/dx = (y^2 - 1)/ (x^2 - 1) with initial condition y(2) = 2 Why is y = 1 and/or y= -1 not solutions? Homework Equations The Attempt at a Solution I am actually able to solve this differential equation but when I separate the equation according to x and y...
