I saw that somewhere and it is supposed to be something Fourier came up with but I can't find somewhere why...
Please explain (with mathematical description if possible)
Chestermiller, if you're reffering to the d'Alembertian, I've already mentioned that the equation is correct for these result that are a function of x+vt and x-vt. However, my point is that to know if a sine wave is such we have to either observe it from experiments or to predict it...
Can anybody out there show me how the sine wave formula y=Acos(kx - ωt + φ_{0}) or y=Acos(kx + ωt + φ_{0}) is the direct solution of the wave equation \frac{\partial^2 y}{\partial t^2} = v^2 \frac{\partial^2 y}{\partial x^2} ? I mean I looked it over on the Internet but everybody keeps...
Sorry I meant to put r in the variable not k. However I see your point about the continuity... I started with having sums in the lhs and the rhs. What do I do now?
Hello,
well here's my problem: I got this integral and I don't know how to calculate it (I am trying to find if there exists a k that satisfies this relation) :
\int_0^k \frac{1}{ ( 4k-4r-2 ) ! ( 4r+1 ) ! }\, \left ( \frac{y}{x} \right )^{4r} dk = \int_0^k \frac{1}{ ( 4k-4r ) ! ( 4r+3 ) ! }\...
Hello guys, since I am new at sums and multivariable calculus I faced a problem when I stumbled upon this: \sum_{r=0}^{k} \binom{n}{4r+1} x^{n-4r-1} y^{4r+1} = \sum_{r=0}^{b} \binom{n}{4r+3} x^{n-4r-3} y^{4r+3} Well, the problem is that I don't know if it's possible to put a limit in every...
OK so we have a dipolar bond between two elements. This bond makes the other electrons redistribute in order to rest in peace. Everything's OK up until now. What happens, however, when two of these other electrons have the same spin an yet they end up together because of this redistribution? I...
Ok guys, I know this must be pretty basic for but I am new to this section of physics. Anyway, my question is a two-part one, I guess:
1) Why does the spin number get only half integer values in fermions and integer values in bosons, mesons, etc.?
2) How do we conclude that the spin number is...
Hey guys, I don't know if here is the right section for this question but anyway. So I was looking for the proof or derivation of the Fermat's principle and all I got was the Huygens–Fresnel principle. However, neither could I understand how the Huygens–Fresnel principle derives the Fermat's...
Thank you very much for your answer, it has been very helpful and the expansion of the Bohr's model answers many of my questions in general. Unfortunately, even with the resource you provided me with, I can't conclude why the mathematical statement stays intact...
Thanks very much anyway!! :)
Hello,
well, I am totally new to this section of physics so my question may sound ridiculous, but here it is:
When I was reading about the Bohr's atomic model, I learned about the Bohr and Rydberg equations (E=-2,18*10^18*Z^2/n^2 J and 1/λ=RZ^2(1/n1^2-1/n2^2) as well as their proofs. Then I...
