Homework Statement
\frac {xy}{x+2y} + \frac {x+2y}{xy} = 2
\frac {xy} {x-2y} + \frac {x-2y} {xy} = 4
The attempt at a solution
I tried replacing
( \frac {xy} {x+2y} = p , say and
\frac {xy} {x-2y} = q ,
say is getting nowhere as i can't find a relationship between the...
Thanks doc, you're a lifesaver.... another question I can't seem to grasp...
Two particles (mass m1 and m2) are moving on a horizontal plane with speeds v1 and v2. Angle between them is A. What is the total momentum.
Won't it just be m1v1 + m2v2cosA? In the book its give as sqrt((m1v1)^2 +...
About the other problem... original velocity is along x axis so y component is 0.
Since after splitting momentum is conseved then along the y axis the momentum of the second particle will cancel out the one of the first particle and will also be along the y axis in the opposite dir...
Thanks, Doc! I think I've got it... please verify!
P.S. This is my first attempt to use LaTeX... forgive if something goes wrong.
According to problem, total kinetic energy of the particles is E
m_1v_1^2/2 + m_2v_2^2/2 = E
Initial momentum = O (system at rest)
New momentum = m_1v_1...
This problem makes more sense:
A body (mass M) is moving with velocity Vo. It breaks into two pieces, one of which (mass m) is traveling with speed V1 in the direction perpendicular to Vo. What is the speed of the other piece.
Mass of other piece is (M-m). The problem I am finding is I don't...
Velocity of the package is, as given, 10m/s. It will be part of final momentum.
Initial momentum = momentum when the system (boat+boy+package) is at rest
Final momentum = momentum at the moment of throwing of package
Do you know what the correct answer is?
Let
m1 = mass of package
m2 = mass of boat+child
Initial momentum = Final momentum
Initial momentum = 0 = m1v1 = m2v2
Don't take my word for it though, i'm still very new to conservation laws myself...
Homework Statement
A body of mass m is dropped from a certain height without initial velocity. At the time t when its speed is v, what is the work done by the air resistance to retard the body?
Homework Equations
Laws of conservation of momentum and inertia
The Attempt at a Solution...
There is no original velocity, the particle is at rest.
Hmm... thats possible but only is the momentum of the the split particles is equal ... can anyone verify this?

For all real values of x and y prove that
x^2+2xy+3y^2+2x+6y+4 >= 1
I am trying to express the left side as a sum of sqares but always come short. Help will be appreciated.
The problem
For all a>0 and b>0 if a^3+b^3 = a^5+b^5 prove that
a^2+b^2<=1+ab
I have no idea on even how to start... i have tried using trigonometry (like in previous post) but come to a dead end... i am looking for the simplest method...
