    Help with conversion of equation

    Q=C_{\rho*v}^y i agree with whozum. you should just use logarithms. it doesnt matter about the subscript.

    Circular motion

    wouldnt the braking create a greater magnitude of friction or create friction if there wasnt any initially present?

    Derivative of sin(3x)

    i agree with OlderDan. h(x)=f(g(x)) if you have that, then: h'(x)=f'(g(x))*g'(x) so, sine is not the derivative of itself.

    Gravity, in essence

    antigravitation, the heim theory looks quite interesting. i love to look at new theories, because i have little faith in the current theories. unfortunately, the computer im on does not have acrobat reader, so i am unable to view the files. the computer at my job = not cool. :yuck: when i get...

    A simple question

    im always looking for a challenge, so i think ill challenge myself with real analysis. the description you provided makes it seem like calculus with proofs. that ought to be fun :rofl: . ill talk to my bc teacher and see what she thinks. thanks quasar987 :wink: .

    A simple question

    i just finished calculus bc ap at my school, and i have no more math classes to take there; i need all 4 years of math to graduate with honors :confused: . im planning on taking a college course in math next year, but i dont know what math course to take. i was wondering if any of you had any...

    Integrals of Trig Functions

    shouldnt it be: \int sec^2x~tanx~dx=\int\frac{sinx}{cos^3x}dx then, you could do u-sub and set u=cosx and go from there? *Edit* dextercioby, you put sinx instead of cosx. i think tanx = sinx/cosx *Edit*

    Integral Help

    1) you have \frac{dy}{dx}=2x+1[/tex] so, you set up the integral: \int dy = \int(2x+1)dx solve the indefinite integral, plug in for x and y, and solve for C. 3) this a u-sub problem, where u=3x^2-7 and [itex]du=6xdx 2) use the same concept as in #1

    Properties of CsF and NaF

    NaF having a smaller radius could account for its higher boiling point. If an atom has a smaller radius, that means the elements are closer together, so more heat is needed to seperate them.

    Review Questions- Need Help

    hmmm, lets see: \frac{1}{2}mv^2+\frac{1}{2}I\omega^2=mgh \frac{1}{2}mv^2+\frac{1}{2}(\frac{2}{3}mr^2\frac{v^2}{r^2})=mgh \frac{1}{2}mv^2+\frac{1}{3}mv^2=mgh 3mv^2+2mv^2=6mgh 5v^2=6gh \frac{5v^2}{6g}=h h=2.125~meters yea, i got the same thing as cde42003. :confused:

    The force of gravity can only be observed between two or more bodies

    gravitons nor gravitational fields exists. they are both just abstract concepts that try to explain something that has not yet been conceived. want to know something else? electric fields dont exist either!

    AP Physics B Test - Torque Help?

    heh, saphic_yellow. how did you think of the physics exam. i took it. i didnt think it was bad at all. unfortunately, when i view a test as easy, that is usually not the outcome. :frown: im too impatient to test. i hope you did well, though.

    Indefinite integral

    are you trying to do: \int\frac{dx}{e^x+e^{-x}} if so, for a=b=c: \int\frac{dx}{e^{ax}+e^{-bx}}=\int\frac{dx}{e^{cx}+e^{-cx}}=\frac{tan^{-1}(e^{cx})}{c}+C i hope that helps

    Lagrange Error

    arg, i just went to a bc calculus session at my school. we did a lagrange error problem. the whole concept baffles me for some reason. im sure many wont be on the ap test, because i managed a 5 on the practice one; however, i would love to learn to do it. anyone want to do a sample problem...

    Tricky trig substitution

    7/2 exponent is like my square root to the 7th -\frac{(\sqrt{81-x^2})^2}{7}=-\frac{(81-x^2)^{7/2)}{7} also, we had to use trig substitution, so that left out the easy 81-x^2 sub

    Tricky trig substitution

    im hoping i worked this out right; its long: \int x(81-x^2)^{5/2}dx the integral contains a^2-x^2, so i set x=asin\theta. that would make x=9sin\theta and dx=9cos\theta d\theta: \int 9sin\theta(81-81sin^2\theta)^{5/2}9cos\theta d\theta = \int 9sin\theta[81(1-sin^2\theta)]^{5/2}9cos\theta...

    correct! they have the same masses, so the cue ball transfers all of its energy to the eightball making it move forward and the cue ball come to a halt.
