    Propagation of error help

    Homework Statement I slide a ball off of a ramp (the ramp is on a table) and the ball hits the ground and bounces horizontally and vertical. I know that horizontal velocity = horizontal distance*sqrt(gravity/2*height) or d*sqrt(g/2h) I want to know the equation for calculation error. The...

    Help with vector spaces axioms

    Homework Statement for the 2x2 matrix [a 12;12 b] is it a vector space Homework Equations 1. If u and v are objects in V, then u+v is in V 2. u+v = v + u 3. u+(v+w) = (u+v)+w 4. There is an object 0 in V, called a zero vector for V, such that 0+u = u+0 = u for all u in V 5. For each u in V...
