    Show that the Change in Volume is Independent of the Path

    Here is the work I have done so far. I did use the equations but I was having a hard time understanding in my mind the final values to plug in specifically for the final T value. I assumed it was referring to the final state so I plugged in 400 K. Please let me know if I made any mistakes...

    Show that the Change in Volume is Independent of the Path

    So would I have to change the equation of state around and plug it into each change of V, change of T, and change of P? Edit: I should plug them into the partial difference equation? The change in should be constants I think. Edit(again): The only equation I really have to plug in is V=(RT)/P...

    Fortran Fortran Help (Do Loop)

    Hey guys, I'm new to fortran and I'm having a slight problem. I put my code below as reference. I first set up a my known values. Then I used an equation to solve for v. After I solve for v I then computed c which involves v. What I'm now trying to do is to loop the value I got for c back...

    Surface Integral Problem (Answer Already Given)

    Ok I figured it out guys. Thanks to LCKurtz for explaining it to me. The function I had is correct -375r+300. Since it was a circle it was easier for me to put into circular coordinates. So I had to change from dxdy to r dr dΘ Whole set-up: ∫∫-375r+300 r dr dΘ from 0 to 0.8 then from 0...

    General Enginnering Problem Dealing with Voltage Supply

    Hello, So I'm facing some difficulties. I'm using a DC voltage supply and connecting it to a PIC Board. The AC adapter that comes with the board outputs 9V DC. To be safe I'm just using 5V from the DC voltage supply. When I connect it to the board the reading from the voltage supply drops to...

    Which describes the magnetic flux through a section of a loop?

    Wow. Thanks gneill. I think I know the answer. Phi = B.A It has SI units of the weber (Wb) which is a tesla metre squared (Tm^2) and is a scalar Am I right?

    When is the magnetic flux on a section of a closed surface equal to zero?

    Oh. ok so flux = B.A.cos x , where x is the angle between magnetic field and area vector. since x= 90 degree cos x = 0 and hence flux = 0. The answer is C. I'm a right?

    Magnetic Field involving solenoids

    20mm = .02 30mm = .03 assuming that I can ignore n because it will be the same for both. Would it be E because the radii doesn't play a role in the equation?

    Converge or Diverges?

    1. The limit of (1+ 1/n)^n as n goes towards infinity is e. Since the question asks (1+ 1/n)^2n the answer is e^2. Just take the limit of (1+ 1/n)^2n as n goes towards infinity. 2. the limit as arctan(n) goes to inifinity is infinity, thus arctan(n) diverges.
