    Calculus Book for complementing differential equations

    That book is ~100 old and is barely readable. A modern alternative would be Elementary Euclidean Geometry by C G Gibson.

    Super Blue Blood Moon

    Yes that's what happened to me. I missed the beginning, it was cool but not as good as last year's solar eclipse.

    Super Blue Blood Moon

    I saw the whole eclipse except a bit of beginning but I didn't any blood or red colour. It was all white for me.

    I Understanding an integral

    Unless I made a sign error I think the best you can do is $$ \int \frac{d^3\phi}{dx^3} \psi dx + \int \dfrac{d^3\psi}{dx^3} \phi dx = \psi \dfrac{d^2 \phi}{ dx^2} - \dfrac{d\psi}{dx} \dfrac{d \phi}{ dx} + \dfrac{d^2\psi}{dx^2} \phi $$

    I Understanding an integral

    Meh ... my try : $$\int \frac{d^3\phi}{dx^3} \psi dx = \psi \dfrac{d^2 \phi}{ dx^2} - \int \dfrac{d\psi}{dx} \dfrac{d^2 \phi}{ dx^2} dx = \psi \dfrac{d^2 \phi}{ dx^2} - \left( \dfrac{d\psi}{dx} \dfrac{d \phi}{ dx}-\int \dfrac{d^2\psi}{dx^2} \dfrac{d \phi}{ dx} dx\right) \\= \psi \dfrac{d^2...

    NaOH Vs C2H5-OH

    ##C_2H_5OH+H_2O--->C_2H_6O+H_2O## is wrong. Ethanol does (partially)dissociate into hydroxyl group and alkyl group, just that this dissociation does not happen in plain water. In nucleophilic substitution reactions (ethanol mainly undergoes SN2) -OH of ethanol is partially dissociated from...

    Intro Math Best book for understanding arithmetic?

    That's what I mean when I said arithmetic(+,-,*,/) is for Stephen Wolfram. But elementary school students don't learn from 500 page undergrad logic book. I am still confused, what does OP wants to learn ? Logic or arithmetic (+,*,/,-) which I guess he already knows.

    Intro Math Best book for understanding arithmetic?

    Hilbert's language looks obsolete to me. Does OP wants to learn logic or arithmetic(+,-,/,*) ?

    Intro Math Best book for understanding arithmetic?

    I won't call that arithmetic. That looks like Mathematical logic. If you already know arithmetic(+,-,/,*) then what else are going to learn in it, you already know everything. Arithmetic (+,-,/,*) is of very little use in maths. If you want to learn maths then you should learn...

    I guess it is so because it might be a waste of time to teach non-maths students with those books (atleast Apostol).

    Calculus *BEST* Calculus 3 Textbook for self study

    All the books I mentioned are available on Amazon (want link ?); they all are pretty standard textbooks. Book by Hardy is freely available at Internet archive (well, you can find others also but I am not sure if its legal or not; Internet archive is not super clean). If you read Apostol from...

    Chemistry Books on Physical chemistry

    Yes it popular book but it is also hated by many. Take a look at this old PF thread, https://www.physicsforums.com/threads/atkins-physical-chemistry-book.314538/. For me, the worst part of the book is its problem selection, confusing didactics when dealing with Maths and lack of theoretical...
