1. Basic Maxwell Speed Distribution Function

Homework Statement Homework Equations The Attempt at a Solution I DO NOT NEED HELP WRITING THE PROGRAM! I'm just trying to figure out the basics behind it. Since this is an integral I will be solving this problem by using riemann sums. Where I'm having the most trouble is in the...
2. Derive the energy equation for a van der Waal gas.

Homework Statement Derive the energy equation for a van der Waal gas when T and v are the independent variables. Homework Equations I'm required to start from: du=\frac{\partial u}{\partial T} dT +\frac{\partial u}{\partial v} dv The Attempt at a Solution We'll when I first...
3. Show that the Change in Volume is Independent of the Path

Ok thanks I'm going to take another look at what I did. Will post when I finish.
4. Show that the Change in Volume is Independent of the Path

Here is the work I have done so far. I did use the equations but I was having a hard time understanding in my mind the final values to plug in specifically for the final T value. I assumed it was referring to the final state so I plugged in 400 K. Please let me know if I made any mistakes...
5. Show that the Change in Volume is Independent of the Path

So would I have to change the equation of state around and plug it into each change of V, change of T, and change of P? Edit: I should plug them into the partial difference equation? The change in should be constants I think. Edit(again): The only equation I really have to plug in is V=(RT)/P...
6. Show that the Change in Volume is Independent of the Path

The equation of state would be PV=nRT. P- pressure V- volume n- number of moles T-temperature R-universal constant
7. Show that the Change in Volume is Independent of the Path

Homework Statement Homework Equations The Attempt at a Solution I understand what the question is asking. Both ways I should get the same answer. I'm having trouble figuring out the mathematics behind this question.
8. Fortran Fortran Help (Do Loop)

Hey guys, I'm new to fortran and I'm having a slight problem. I put my code below as reference. I first set up a my known values. Then I used an equation to solve for v. After I solve for v I then computed c which involves v. What I'm now trying to do is to loop the value I got for c back...
9. Two-conductor transmission line, find the potential difference V of th

Hey guys. I attached my work to this problem before but it didn't go through so here it is. It's ATTACHED. I also included so information from the textbook. if anyone has any ideas please let me know. Also I even asked my teacher and he said the answer I should be getting is the one that is...
10. Two-conductor transmission line, find the potential difference V of th

Two-conductor transmission line, find the potential difference V of the two conductors.? Two-conductor transmission line. At point P (x=43 cm, y=32 cm) in Fig. 2-10, |E|=450 V/m. If s=25 cm, h=29 cm, and r=12.5 cm, find the potential difference if these two conductors. Ans. =1.13 kV...
11. Surface Integral Problem (Answer Already Given)

Ok I figured it out guys. Thanks to LCKurtz for explaining it to me. The function I had is correct -375r+300. Since it was a circle it was easier for me to put into circular coordinates. So I had to change from dxdy to r dr dΘ Whole set-up: ∫∫-375r+300 r dr dΘ from 0 to 0.8 then from 0...
12. Surface Integral Problem (Answer Already Given)

Thanks guys. I will work on it later today and I will get back to you guys. Once again thanks
13. Surface Integral Problem (Answer Already Given)

Sorry about that sir. I just edited the original post.
14. Surface Integral Problem (Answer Already Given)

Homework Statement The problem is to calculate the flux emanating from the exhaust of a jet engine. The air gas velocity from a jet engine varies linearly from a maximum of 300 m/s at the center of the circular exhaust opening to zero at the edges. If the exhaust diameter is 1.6 m, find...
15. General Enginnering Problem Dealing with Voltage Supply

Ok Thanks guys. I'm going to try this in the lab room tomorrow and will reply with my results. Once again, Thanks.
