Homework Statement
I need to write a Matlab program that solves the following:
Use the Runge-Kutta Fehlberg Algorithm with tolerance TOL= 10^(-4) to approximate the solution to the initial-value problem:
y'=(y/t)^2 + y/t, 1<=t<=1.2, y(1)=1, with hmax=0.05 and hmin=0.02.

Homework Statement
Show that for any natural number K, there is an n large enough so that (2^n) > K.
Homework Equations
The Attempt at a Solution
K is a natural number -> the smallest possible K would be 0 (lower bound?) and the smallest 2^n is 1 when n = 0, and the upper bound...
Homework Statement
Prove that for any two integers a and b, a+b=b+a. You may use the face that this holds for natural numbers.
Homework Equations
The Attempt at a Solution
a=(x,y), b=(u,v)
x,y,u,v are natural numbers
a+b = (x,y)+(u,v) = (u,v)+ (x,y) = b+a
I'm not sure if my...

Homework Statement
A 5.00-m, 0.732-kg wire is used to support two uniform 235-N posts of equal length (see figure). Assume that the wire is essentially horizontal and that the speed of sound is 344 m/s. A strong wind is blowing, causing the wire to vibrate in its 7th overtone. What are the...
for d) I'm thinking that part (a) can be found by using the energy approach because K_max = (1/2)m(v_max)^2, from v_max, you can find a_max; part (b) cannot be found by using the energy method because energy doesn't deal with what happens in the beginning and end; part (c) cannot be found using...
Homework Statement
While on a visit to Minnesota, you sign up to take an excursion around one of the larger lakes. When you go to the dock where the 1500-kg boat is tied, you find that the boat is bobbing up and down in the waves, executing simple harmonic motion with amplitude 20cm. The boat...
Homework Statement
A rocket is accelerating upward at 4.00 m/s^2 from the launchpad on the earth. Inside a small 1.50-kg ball hangs from the ceiling by a light 1.10-m wire. If the ball is displaced 8.50 degrees from the vertical and released, find the amplitude and period of the resulting...
Homework Statement
A 1.50-kg, horizontal, uniform tray is attached to a vertical ideal spring of force constant 185 N/m and a 275-g metal ball is in the tray. The spring is below the tray, so it can oscillate up-and-down. The tray is then pushed down 15.0 cm below its equilibrium point (call...
