    Enzyme kinetics question

    Thanks very much for the information. I completely understand about the download link, and i'v now attached a PDF file of the presentation. I think the answer to part a may well be on the second page. However unfortunately i'm still at a dead end on (b). Would it require plotting a graph? If so...

    Enzyme kinetics question

    Homework Statement Hi, having not studied biology i'm struggling to get to grasps with what are probably basic concepts. Looking through the notes i have i was just wondering if the equations/derivations i'v attached are relevant, and if so how. A link to the powerpoint file can be found...

    Differential equation problem

    Sorry about that, stupid error. In the initial problem it should be \frac{2sqrt(y)}{x^2}

    Differential equation problem

    Homework Statement x^2\frac{dy}{dx}=\frac{2sqrt(y)}{x^4} Where y(1)=3 Homework Equations The Attempt at a Solution \int \frac{dy}{2sqrt(y)}=\int \frac{dx}{x^4} 4sqrt(y)=\frac{-1}{3x^3}+c c=4sqrt(3)+\frac{1}{3} So i end up with...

    Linear differential equation problem

    Homework Statement \ \frac{dy}{dx} + 2y = xe^x Homework Equations The Attempt at a Solution I'v only ever solved differential equations where values can be seperated easily, i understand i may have to use something called the integrating factor but this does not seem to fit...

    Integration problem

    Homework Statement Compute the following antiderivative \int (sin^3(x))(cos^4(x)) dx Homework Equations The Attempt at a Solution If this problem requires use of integration by parts i'm struggling to work out to split it up and make it manageable. Have searched countlessly for...

    Integration problem

    Homework Statement Compute the following antiderivative \int \frac {(2x+1)}{ (x^2+1)} d \ x Homework Equations The Attempt at a Solution I tried a method using using substitution of u = x^2+1, but i think this is approaching the question in the complete wrong way. I think maybe some kind...
