    Engineering Analysis of a Digital Circuit

    Homework Statement 1. (a) Remove all the internal bubbles in the circuit by applying DeMorgan's theorem so that the circuit consists of only AND gates and OR gates, and INVERTERS. INVERTERS can only be used for the inversion of inputs. Note that there is a 3-input NAND gate shared by both F1...

    Electric Potential and a Conductor

    Hmm interesting. I've got it now. The electric potential inside the shell is the sum of the electric potential on the outer edge and the inner edge. This yields: V=k\frac{3Q}{4r_1} Ok, but I'm still confused on the next question. I would think the electric potential inside the cavity would...

    Electric Potential and a Conductor

    Never mind, what that tells me is that the electric potential inside the conductor is constant, but how do I derive the value?

    Electric Potential and a Conductor

    Yes, I know that vec(E)=-vec(\nabla V) I also know that E=-\frac{dV}{ds} when ds||E If I use the second equation I set E equal to zero and you have v=0 which is wrong. The first one I'm not even sure how to use since I have magnitudes of vectors not vectors.

    Jacobian Change of Variables Question

    you can rewrite the exponents as (x-y)(x+y). Using the substitution u=x-y and y=x+y you have a parallelogram with bounds v=3u,v=3u-8,v=-2u+1,v=-2u+8. Therefore, the area can be represented by the following integrals...

    Spherical Coordinates Integral

    Hmm, that's what I thought you were thinking. I handed in the assignment today and got the answer key. They setup the integral the way you did in the answer key. However, I would argue that part of the region in that integral is not under the cone. Everything under the cone is contained within a...

    Spherical Coordinates Integral

    Ok, I think I was misinterperting the volume described. I took it to mean basically the shadow cast down by the cone on the xy-plane, since that region lies under the cone, above the xy-plane, and in the sphere. I'm not sure if the area you are thinking of is correct though. In the area you are...

    Spherical Coordinates Integral

    Oh, haha. Cant believe I forgot that. I would think the upper limit on rho depends on phi because with this shape, you can change theta all you want and rho is not going to change. However, changing phi changes rho, this is because the solid is symmetrical about the z-axis. Right?

    Polar Coordinates Improper Integral Proofs

    update, I proved everything, however I'm not sure If my proof for b is what they're asking for. I said that \int_{-\infty}^{\infty}e^{-x^2}dx\int_{-\infty}^{\infty}e^{-y^2}dy=\int_{-\infty}^{\infty}\int_{-\infty}^{\infty}e^{-(x^2+y^2)}dy dx and since I had proved that the rhs of the...

    Vector Application Problem

    Oh wait. you know v(0)=0. So this could be arranged to be m(t)\frac{1}{e^2}=m(0) so it uses 1/e2 of it's fuel. Is this what you were thinking?

    Proof of r(t) and r'(t) orthogonal on a sphere

    Ok, I stared at the problem for a good amount of time and I think I have it. I managed to manipulate a few things... 2( \vec{r}(t) \cdot \vec{r}'(t))=\frac{d}{dt}(\vec{r}(t)\cdot\vec{r}(t))=\frac{d}{dt}(\left\|\vec{r}(t)\right\|^2)=0 so it must be true then that also...

    Proof of r(t) and r'(t) orthogonal on a sphere

    Hmm. Lineintegral1: Ok, I can rewrite what I have written. \vec{r}(t) \cdot \vec{r}'(t)=0 \left\|\vec{r}(t) \right\|\left\|\vec{r}'(t)\right\|cos\theta=0 ||r(t)|| has to equal the radius of the sphere. However, isen't that what I'm suppose to be proving given that r(t) and r'(t) are...

    3 Orthogonal Vectors Problem

    Yes, but since the vectors have to be unit vectors and both vectors a and c are orthogonal to b, |v| is going to be the same regardless. You can rotate a vector by a specific angle and the others have to stay orthogonal so they will move as well by the angle maintaining |v|. That's why I chose...

    Vector Proof

    I'm not quite sure what you are suggesting. I can draw the relationship |a||b|cos \theta = |c||b| cos 2\theta I can eliminate the |b| from both sides, but I don't know where to go from there, since |c| doesn't seem to help when substituting.
