    Engineering Thevenin Equivalent Circuit

    Yes, it is a talking book haha. (Don't know how to do that quote thing you did) Correct me if I am wrong but because the current source is the load, I thought I just turn it into an open circuit then solve for resistance from there. I could just be not understand the whole process...

    First order linear differential equations

    Homework Statement dy/dt=y((3t^2)-1), y(1)=-2 Homework Equations Basic integrals The Attempt at a Solution integrate on both sides: dy/y=dt((3t^2)-1) ========>ln(y)=(t^3)-t+c ========>y=e^((t^3)-t+c) ========>y=e^((t^3)-t)e^(c) I am not sure if its some e rule that I forgot...

    Wire for a coil gun

    I am making a coil gun for my physics project and I am wondering if it is better to use a thick wire or a thin wire for the coiling process. (both are magnetic wire) Also, when I coil it, am I supposed to make only one layer of coil as opposed to several layers? Thanks in advance.

    Finding basis of spaces and dimension

    Can you explain to me how d=a, since a+d=0? Also since I am actually having a hard time learning this on my own, can you tell me what you mean by "elements" and "linear sum"?

    Linear Algebra Help

    Homework Statement There are two questions in my problem set that are giving me a hard time: 1. The cross product of two vectors in R^3 is defined by [a1, a2, a3]X[b1, b2, b3]=[a2b3-a3b2, a3b1-a1b3, a1b2-a2b1] (they are all one column) Consider an arbitrary vector v in R^3. Is the...

    Clarification on what is considered reduced row-echelon form

    Every leading coefficient is 1 and is the only nonzero entry in its column. From the looks of it, it looks like it follows those properties, but I'm just confused if it is still rref if everything is 0, since it doesn't have a leading 1.

    Clarification on what is considered reduced row-echelon form

    According to wikipedia, it is: In linear algebra a matrix is in row echelon form if * All nonzero rows (rows with at least one nonzero element) are above any rows of all zeroes, and * The leading coefficient (the first nonzero number from the left, also called the pivot) of a...
