    Runge Kutta Sine-Gordan equaiton.

    Apologies if this is in the wrong place, but could someone explain to me how I go about converting the sine-gordan equation with 2 double derivatives into one with a single derivative, or how I alter the rung-kutta algorithm to accommodate such a double derivative?

    Relativity(Light years)? PLEASE HELP!

    The relevant equations are: γ=1/root(1-v2/c2) t'=γt x=γx' The 6 years is measured from his frame of reference, you need to measure the distance in the same frame as well.

    Physics pulley question help please

    Let the driving force (weight of the hanging block-friction of the block on the surface)=the combined mass time acceleration. To solve for a. mg-Mgu=(m+M)a. The tension in the string should be the force required to drive the block on the surface against friction at a. T=Ma+Mgu...
