    Tangent Lines

    I need to find an equation for the tangent line to the graph of the function at the specified point, I had some trouble simplifing f(x) so that I can take the lim as h->0 which is the slope. f(x) = Sqrt(x)/5 at (4,(2/5))

    Clock_t start, stop in C

    In this program im using I first declare clock_t start, stop then later position start and stop in a loop. To count how long a switch is turned on. The smallest value I see outputed is no lower than 0.05 sec but I want to be able to count miliseconds. printf("pulse length is %f seconds\n"...

    Law of multiple proportions

    Sulfur forms two compounds with fluorine. In one of them it is observed that 0.447 g of sulfur is combined with 1.06 g of fluorine while in the other, 0.438 g of sulfur is combined with 1.56 g of fluorine. Show that these data illustrate the law of multiple proportions. would...

    Poisson Approximation to Binomial

    For a binomial distribution with n=10 and p=0.5 ,we should not use the poisson approximation because both of the conditions n>=100 and np<=10 are not satisfied. SUppose we go way out on a limb and use the Poisson aproximation anyway. Are the resulting probabilities unacceptable...
