1. ### B Could Archimedes' problem have been solved a little differently?

So my proposal is theoretically correct, but practically difficult. Perfect thanks!
2. ### B Could Archimedes' problem have been solved a little differently?

When I was reading this page to understand Archimedes' 'story' I got a question: http://hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu/hbase/pbuoy.html#buoy According to the example shown, Archimedes found the density of crown by finding the apparent weight. What if he had just measured the volume of water...
3. ### How to solve spring mass damper system manually?

I was a poor student in math and I am paying for it now :|
4. ### How to solve spring mass damper system manually?

Sorry my bad. Yeah the characteristic equation. Once we know it is a second order differential equation, is it no longer needed? Can we describe the whole system with the assumed solution "x = Ce^(λt)"?
5. ### How to solve spring mass damper system manually?

Despite of the fact that I am completely out of touch with electrical engineering, I will try to understand as much as I can. Thanks a lot for suggesting me a good analogy.
6. ### How to solve spring mass damper system manually?

Thanks BvU. I referred to the "solution" page you recommended where they start solving the differential equation assuming the solution is of the form "x = Ce^(λt)". So if this equation directly gives a simple solution for the position of mass x, the 2nd order differential equation that includes...
7. ### How to solve spring mass damper system manually?

The other day when I solved a spring mass damper system in Matlab, I was curious how in olden days would have people solved the equation. We all know the 2nd order differential equation of the system: However if I know the time, damping coefficient, stiffness and mass, will I be able to find...
8. ### Job Skills What next for manual gearbox design engineers?

Simple questions are sometimes difficult to ask. I am a mechanical design engineer of automotive gearboxes with a UG qualification and 12 years of experience. My core expertise is into gears and special interest in NVH. In the recent years I see the automotive OEMs cutting down research cost of...
9. ### Will steam generated inside an oven not break it?

Honestly, I am pretty sure this won't be an interesting taste to the people other than the south part of India [:rolleyes:] Yet I will provide a link: https://simmertoslimmer.com/how-to-make-soft-idlis/ P.s. - This is not a sweet one. Apologies if you were deceived by the word "cake" :-p
10. ### Will steam generated inside an oven not break it?

Thank you all! The rice cake turned better than I expected. This forum has now given me an easy and quick method to repeat my traditional food in a new place :) Like @Lnewqban said, the upper layer of the cake was a bit hard perhaps because of the radiation it received. I plan to cover it with...
11. ### Will steam generated inside an oven not break it?

Clear! I am planning to take a trial today. Will update here tomorrow :)
12. ### Will steam generated inside an oven not break it?

Is there a way we can check? Are these vents (or leakage points) visible?
13. ### Will steam generated inside an oven not break it?

Hi... I am really sorry, I don't know the dishes or recipes you are talking about. The way I used to cook these rice cakes is by allowing a continuous steam leakage. Do ovens also have that leakage possibility?
14. ### Will steam generated inside an oven not break it?

Radiation is not wanted here. I agree that this is a bad idea then.
15. ### Will steam generated inside an oven not break it?

I really have no idea. And that's exactly my question.
