    Are business degree profitable?

    Hey just curious about the profitability of a business degree. I hear MBA's are very popular, what about the bachelors though? And how do these stand next to degrees related to money?

    A limit of F(x) says what we already know?

    I've been looking in my book lately on discontinuitys and I realized that a number that can't possibly be in the domain of the function is what leads to holes in the range of the function. So when I look at things like these, assuming I can't factor my way around this so that there...

    A limit of F(x) says what we already know?

    I've been getting very annoyed with learning limits lately. Through direct substitution we can find the limit of something, I know that. F(x)= x + 2. Intuitively, I know that if I were to substitute 2 to x I would get 4. F(4)= 2+ 2 = 4. This appears to be correct. Likewise, the LIMIT of...

    Physics Physics PhD Versatility?

    Yeah, and I do love physics. And it too seems like a physics PhD is the only degree that might open all of these options for me

    Physics Physics PhD Versatility?

    Hey all, I've been contemplating PhD'ing in physics for a long time now. Originally I wanted to pursue this goal for my affinity to learning and interest in research. However, like other people in I've seen posting in this forum lately, I too have developed an strange fascination for finance...

    Domain and range of a function help

    I'm sorry I didn't mean linear. Heh, I had a feeling I was wording everything all wrong. so is F(x)=x2 the same as y=x2? or F(x)=mx+b is the same as y=mx+b ? Also any other graph-able equation you can think of. So in a t-table when x = a value, it will also give the value of y. And...

    Domain and range of a function help

    So I'm skipping pre-cal with full intentions of picking up on AP Calc. Our summer course work is taken from a book called preparing for calculus. After giving me some who-dad that I knew already everything changed in an instant. There's a little gap that isn't quiet filled. A function is...

    I'm a skinny guy

    I didn't mean illegal or harmful chems. I meant things like creatin or the stuff they put in other muscle or weight gain helpers. Like drinks and what not. My current Work out is running to catch up to a bus every morning. A lot of walking around downtown. And alot of thinking while I...

    I'm a skinny guy

    Looking to gain muscle. MY parents are actually not in shape..at all. So I don't see why I don't have any weight..but I don't. I need a plan or something to go from 5'10 120 lbs to something a bit more sturdier. I don't wanna hit the gym alot, and i don't mind chemicals, if they aren't very very...

    Laptop and community

    So, recently I've noticed, here I am reading my "first book to c++" When I'm not really busy. However at these times, I'm not at home. So I'm working on grasping concepts while not quite getting practice. So I decided I should buy a laptop. What laptop would be fabulous for a 340 biweekly...

    just screen space? Is wasting it bad? Like..memory wise or? Just scrolling through code? I think it looks a little more organized

    If and else question

    So, in my C++ book it says only a single statement can be used in an if-else like if (blah==blahblah) cout<<blahblahblah else cout<<blah he ha unless you do if (blah==blahblah) { cout<<blahblahblah cout<<also blah } else { cout<<blah he ha cout<<blah le ha...

    Inclined planes + vector questions

    Oh. That makes so much more sense, because gravity only works straight down (to the middle of earth).So When i draw a vector going straight down for the hypotenuse I get that the object is being pulled down at this rate, and because of newtons laws or normal force, its not falling straight down...

    If i drew a vector perpendicular to the object? Then 9.8m/s^2*200kg

    Inclined planes + vector questions

    hmm..but wouldn't getting the normal force first work? Thengetting weight and using pythag rearranged to get the last bit work?

    Inclined planes + vector questions

    Thanks. Well I'm looking at my own drew up inclined plane thingy with a 200kg box on it. I know that if i draw a light straight down Il'll get the weight and hypot of another triangle. So what good is that hypot? isn't it a resultant vector already?

    Inclined planes + vector questions

    So, my physics teacher has made this VERY confusing. We use vectors. But for some reason I keep wanting to think the resultant vector is the ultimate vector for magnitude and direction of force,speed acceleration w/e. But for some reason I'm not seeing that Normal force is the force that...

    Friction and normal force

    Aha, so it has equilibrium. So its not really much of a vector, but the acceleration of gravity that would be can still be turned around and multipiled by the co to get the static or kinetic friction,right?

    Friction and normal force

    Woo that confused me ha. Sorry. Maybe I worded It kinda funny. So the normal force, is the contact for between two objects? That makes sense, so of course the weight of the object on the surface? If I'm correct the weight is the measure of the force of gravity on a certain mass. With gravity...

    Friction and normal force

    More or less just a general question. So if the normal force is pretty much the weight of the object (mass times acceleration of gravity) and then the friction is that times the coefficient? So basically weight is what causes MORE magnitude of friction? We take the force vector of gravity...

    Help me help my diet!

    I have a soda drinking problem. Basically, all I want to do is a find a healthier thing to drink. Due to lack of sleep and exercise i feel like i might be losing mental clarity, so perhaps something thats sort of a "Brain drink"? Anything good? green tea maybe?
