    The Fourier Series

    The Fourier Series!! Hi guys, i'm having a bit a trouble helping my daughter with this question on the fourier series approximation: The fourier series for a real, odd function, f(t) can be written as: f(t) = [SUM to infinity, n=1, of]: b[subscipt n] sin(nwt) where f(t=T)=f(t) and...

    Mercury thermometer temperature problem

    The length of the mercury coloumn in a mercury thermometer is 5cm when the bulb is immersed in water at the triple point (273.16k). What is the temperature if it reads 6.0cm? What will the length of coloum be if immersed in boiling water (at steam point)? I'm new to this forum, but would...
