Hi All,
I am looking to determine how these Vases where modeled using maths on this webpage https://www.3dforprint.com/3dmodel/sine-wave-vase-generator/2116. It looks like the surface is parametrically defined and wrapped around a cylinder.
Interestingly he mentions

Dear Experts,
Currently I am reading up on Special Relativity.
I struggle to understand how from the perspective of the Muon that the distance to the surface of the Earth is contracted and thus more Muons arrive at the surface based detector.
How can this be? To me the physical space is real...

Hi. I am not a student and this is not homework. I am reading physicsnin my spare time and occasionally I put a question up to get peoples opinions/help.
Please advise how I should proceed for future queries..

So in laymans terms if I was to describe a situation to my friend about stopping a 18stone rugby player in his tracks by a sufficient tackle..which would be more appropriate...the energy approach?
Or perhaps both are equivalent because to stop him covering more distance instantly is equivalent...
How should I look at the problem at stopping a moving object with the following conditions
1) mass m and speed v
2) 0.5 m and 2v
3)0.5m and sqrt 2 v
Simple math tells me the number 2 would require more energy to stop it. I can relate to energy better in terms of how to stop a moving mass...
Hi Guys,
I have a simple annulus of radius 25mm and 15mm of length 50mm where i applieD a torque of T=100000Nmm. Its inertia about its main axis is I=124.9 kgmm2.
Therefore i expect the acceleration to be T/I.
Its not clear how to confirm this answer in Msc Adams because when i set simulation...
Hi Ackbach,
This looks good, I think you are moving in the right direction! I have found a pictue online that should clarify my intention.
From the picture that we can use as an example.
There are approximately 22 nodes circumferentially and 9 nodes axially giving a total of 198 nodes to...
I created a jpeg of size 145KB which is under 195KB for a jpeg but it still won't load up.
1) It is 7 nodes long
2) Distributing the force circumferentially over 7 nodes and axially over 7 nodes thereby giving total number of 49 nodes
3)Axis is z, correct
4)The total force is acting upwards...
Folks,
I have an FEA applicaton where I need to apply a total force acing vertically upward but to be distributed over half a cylinder (1st n 2nd quadrant). This half cylinder i representd by a set of nodes between 0 \le \theta \le 180
The force will be maximum at 90 degrees and 0 at 0/180...
but assuming we have the technology it would still be impossible to travel through all that dust without damage? To me, that is the ultimate limitation IMHO!

Hi Folks,
Can somenone explain what "information" is with respect to black holes?
I thought it was all about mass and energy from both quantum Mechanics and GR perspective.
Why does "information" come into it...sounds unusual to say the least.

Hi Folks,
I am struggling to see how eqn 4.1.17 is determined using eqn 4.1.10 for problem 4.1.2. It is not clear to me what \frac{d\phi}{dt} is.
I have inserted the eqns I think might be useful into the one jpeg. Any ideas? Sorry I can't make the picture any clearer given the size limit.
Thanks
Hi Folks,
I am struggling to see how eqn 4.1.17 is arrived at using using eqn 4.1.10 at bottom of attachment. Its not clear to me what \frac{d \phi}{dt} is...apart from what is given in eqn 2.1.30...
Any ideas?

I am puzzled how entries M_13 and M_23 were obtained in the following matrix M_{2f} as in attached picture.

I can say I fully understand but perhaps some one can enlighten me regarding what is involved converting derivatives to differentials...for my own understanding and information
Folks,
Just struggling to see how this is simplified.
\frac{f''(x)}{((1+f'(x)^2)^{1/2}}-\frac{f'(x)^2 f''(x)}{((1+f'(x)^2)^{3/2}}=\frac{f''(x)}{((1+f'(x)^2)^{3/2}}
if we let a=(1+f'(x)^2)^{1/2} then I get as far as
f''(x)[a^{-1/2}-f'(x)^2a^{-3/2}]=f''(x)[a^{-1/2}-f'(x)^2 a^{-1/2} a^{-1}]...
Hi Folks,
I got stuck towards the end where it ask to derive the unit normal (eqn 3.2.29 I don't know how they arrived at n_x. I have looked at trig identities...and I have assumed the following

Hi RUber,
I have it. The extended segment of "a" which forms a right angled triangle with P is Pcos(pi-psi). The tan of lambda is obvious. Thank you very much.
I have learned a new way of tacking triangles!
Folks,
I am puzzled how one obtains equation 3.2.31 based on the schematic as attached! Can you help?
Is there an online source I can refer to to learn how to obtain angles and magnitudes of complex schematics?
Thanks
Ah ok,
So I add in an extra step
wrt to x \phi_x+\phi_y \frac{dy}{dx}=0 *by dx to give \phi_x dx+\phi_y dy=0
or
wrt to y \phi_y+\phi_x \frac{dx}{dy}=0 *by dy to give \phi_y dy+\phi_x dx=0
Sorry, I understand the derivative of a constant is 0 but I still don't see how you get the last term where you have dx and dy by themselves...even if i try
\phi_x dx=-\phi_y dy= \frac{dy}{dx}=-\frac{\phi_x}{\phi_y}
Folks,
Differentiate implicitly \phi(x,y)=0 I get:
wrt to x \phi_x+\phi_y \frac{dy}{dx} and
wrt to y \phi_y+\phi_x \frac{dx}{dy}
however I don't know how this is derived
\phi_x dx+\phi_y dy=0
Hi Folks,

I think the last 2 equations are coming from the chain rule so yes I can see that.
However, not sure how one arrives at the first equation 3.2.9 by differentiating "both sides"?
Thanks
Hi Folks,
It is been given that differentiation of \phi(x,y)=0 is \phi_{x} dx+ \phi_{y} dy=0 however I arrive at
\phi_{x} dx/dy+ \phi_{y} dy/dx=0 via the chain rule. Where \phi_{x}=d \phi/dx etc
What am I doing wrong?
Thanks

What is the idea or physical significance of simultaneous diagonalisation? I cannot think of anything other than playing a role in efficient computation algorithms?

But i calculate \lambda to be the square root of the identity matrix which is the identity matrix to which its eigenvalues \lambda_1=\lambda_2=1 from the characteristic polynomial x^2-2x+1.
i don't see where \pm 1 comes from
We would then have $$I v= \lambda^2 v$$
How do we work out the eigenvalues if we don't know the value of M..?
To me, the eigenbasis are determined by first finding the eigenvalues and eigenvectors. Not sure what he means by " going to the eigenbasis of M"!
Hi Folks,
I am looking at Shankars Principles of Quantum Mechanics.

Hint: Go to eigenbasis of M^i and use equation i=j. Not sure how to start this?

1) Ok, so the eigenvector for
\lambda_1=e^{i \theta} is \begin{bmatrix}1\\ i\end{bmatrix}
and
\lambda_2=e^{-i \theta} is \begin{bmatrix}1\\ 1/i\end{bmatrix}
To show these 2 vectors are orthogonal I get the inner product
<v_1,v_2>=(1*1)+(i*1/i)\ne 0 but I expect 0...?
Then we get
- i v_1+ v_2=0 (1)
- v_1-i v_2=0 (2)
v_2=i v_1 from 1
v_2=-v_1/i from 2
1) These contradict? How is the eigenvector obtained from this?
2) what if we have a situation where \theta=0? Then \sin \theta=0
Hi Folks,
I calculate the eigenvalues of \begin{bmatrix}\cos \theta& \sin \theta \\ - \sin \theta & \cos \theta \end{bmatrix} to be \lambda_1=e^{i \theta} and \lambda_2=e^{-i \theta}
for \lambda_1=e^{i \theta}=\cos \theta + i \sin \theta I calculate the eigenvector via A \lambda = \lambda V as...
