Hi all. I am in the middle of a ridig body rotation problem. Anyways, I have x double dot = sin(x) and i need to find what x dot is. x is a function of time 't' and I just have no idea how to get it. so it is d^2x(t)/dt^2=sin(x(t)) where x(t) is a function and i need to find dx(t)/dt...
Hi all, I am doing quantum stuff in my physics class right now and have a few question that I would like to know the answers to...
1) A partical has wave proporties that relate to the probability of where it exists. I guess my question is how do particals move? Like can they exist anywhere...
Hello all, I have to decide between UCLA and berkeley for undergrad physics. I would rather go to UCLA for social reasons, but i know berkeley is a great school for physics(im sure UCLA isnt half bad either). My question is how important is the school for undergrad. i know for grad school the...
I would stay start with mechanics, then E and M, then modern physics. You should leave some calculus. If you want to jump into something really interesting that you might beable to grasp right now, read about special relativity.
None of this is true... If a sound wave has wavelength L and another has wavelength L/2 in the same room then they still will move at the same speed. The one with L/2 will have twice as high of a frequency. speed of sound = wavelength times frequency... and the speed of sound is pretty much...
It needs to be 12 X 8 which has an area of 96 cm. We will call the sides of the frame 'a' and we know that all the sides have a length of 'a'. the area of the area inclosed by the frame is just a*a. So we need to take the total area enclosed (a^2) then subtract the area of the picture inside...
Find where centripetal acceleration = g. so a=w^2 * r. where w is angular velosity and r is radius of earth. make g=w^2*r, solve for w. then see that the ratio of w is to the actual angular velosity of earth. What is actually happening at this point is the earth ( and therefore you) is...
If I were you, I would work in energy. Ball starts out with some energy 'E'. This will be only potential grav energy if it starts at rest on top of the ramp. Could be both is you have an initial speed. Anyways, you can just sent up energy equations. This will make it easy to include Kinetic...
