    Rotational Dynamics

    Thanks, in the absence of an answer I've reread my notes, and managed to solve the problem. I've had to put everything in it's place in my head(all the different accelerations, and velocities). English is obviously not my mother language so I probably got the terminology part wrong.

    Rotational Dynamics

    Homework Statement A wheel is spinning at n=1200rpm. The wheel starts to linearly decelerate, and after t=100s it stops. Determine the velocity, and acceleration of a point 10cm from the center of the mass, after 50 seconds of decelerating. The radius of the wheel is 30cm. Homework Equations...

    Torque and vectors

    I've tried taking the perpendicular component, but not sure what the lever arm is. I'm not sure how to determine the line of action.

    Torque and vectors

    Homework Statement So I was wondering how do we account for vectors that are at a certain angle. The problem that I'm having with the picture is: if I was calculating torque from point B, how would I account for the vector G. Homework Equations The Attempt at a Solution I've...

    Conservation of energy - spring

    Should it be g*m*(h+∆L)=(1/2)*k*(∆L)^2, because if it's on both sides it's the same

    Conservation of energy - spring

    Homework Statement Hello, I'm having a problem with this. So we drop the weight on this spring, and the question is: how much does the spring compress? The mass is 5kg, the height 0,4m, and the spring elasticity factor k=1700N/m. Homework Equations The Attempt at a Solution I've...

    Multivariable domain

    Maybe should have put the part that was troubling me in the question. So basically, where is z>=-sqrt(x^2+y^2) supposed to be?

    Multivariable domain

    Homework Statement I'm having a problem with solving the domain of |x^2+y^2|<=|z^2|. Homework Equations The Attempt at a Solution From what I got this should be separated into two expressions: x^2+y^2<=z^2, and x^2+y^2>=-z^2. The later doesn't have a real solution because of the...

    Series convergence problem

    No it's -n alright, but I've been switching them up along the way. Now I see my problem. Thanks

    Series convergence problem

    Homework Statement So I need to determine if the series \Sigmaln(1+e^{-n})/n converges. Homework Equations The Attempt at a Solution I know it does, but cannot prove it. Wolfram says that the ratio test indicates that the series converges, but when I try to solve the limit I get that it...

    Falling functions

    That makes sense, but I probably should have said that I was wondering if it converges conditionally. Thanks for clearing things up!

    Falling functions

    My textbook doesn't say it needs to be the absolute value, although it's under the absolute convergence chapter. When I think of it, it makes a lot of sense that it needs to be absolute convergence. But then again if we pair lim(n->inf)a_n=0 with a decreasing function I think we get the same thing.

    Falling functions

    Yes, that is what I meant. English is my second language so math terminology in English is not my strong point. That was my question, and thanks for clearing it up!

    Falling functions

    Homework Statement Hello, I was wondering if a falling function needs to fall on it's whole domain? I was solving a series with alternating sings. It says that if the series has alternating signs, that it converges if: 1) lim(n->0)an=0 2) an is a falling function I was solving this...
