    Mathemathical Methods to Solve a Physics Problem

    Homework Statement An infinite hollow conducting cylinder of unit radius is cut into four equal parts by planes x=0, y=0. The segmments in the first and third quadrant are maintained at potentials +V_{0} and -V_{0} respectively, and the segments in the second and fourth quadrant are maintained...

    Series Summation Convergence

    Find the convergent sum and find the sum of first five terms \sum_{n=1}^{\infty} \frac{sin(nx)}{2^nn} from 1 to infinity. I have found so far that: \sum_{n=1}^{\infty} \frac{sin(nx)}{2^n} = \frac{2sin(x)}{5-4cos(x)} I am not sure how to consider the \frac{1}{n} term. Can someone please help?

    Beat Frequency for a Laser!

    Homework Statement A laser emits a monochromatic beam of wavelength \lambda , which is reflected normally from a plane mirror, receding at speed v . What is the beat frequency between the incident and reflected light? I know that the f_{beat} = |f_2 - f_1|. When the wave hits the...

    A permutation with a special property question!

    Hi there, i was wondering if you had any thoughts on the following question: Let (a_{1}, a_{2}, ..., a_{2n}) be a permutation of {1, 2, ..., 2n} so that |a_{i} - a_{i+1}| \neq |a_{j} - a_{j+1}| , whenever i \neq j . Show that a_{1} = a_{2n} + n, if 1 \leq a_{2i} \leq n for i = 1,2, ..., n

    Difference between Perfect Diamagnetism and Superconductors

    Could someone please explain the difference between Perfect Diamagnetism and Superconductors in terms of the Meissner Effect and the magnetic field passing through an element of the sort. Under low temperatures in perfect diamagnetic materials if there is a magnetic field it remains the same...

    A confusing trigonometric question

    A confusing trigonometric question!!! Hi guys, I had a question. I was given the following equality. There was no problem statement that came with it (i.e. it did not say solve the equation or prove the identity, or anything of this nature) sec x + csc x / tan x + cot x = sin x + cos x...

    Electric Field between two infinite sheets of Opposite charge.

    Homework Statement I am having trouble with an E&M conceptual problem. Suppose we have two sheets of infinite charge, one positive and one negative (the positive is left of the negative and they have charge densities given respectively alpha and - alpha.). The problem asks to find the...

    Help with a proof

    Hi there can someone help me on this one: If gcd(a,b)=1 then gcd(a,bk) = gcd(a,k) I have arrived at the conclusion that gcd(a,bk) gcd(a,k) both divide k but from here I do not get anywhere. I would like some hints on this please.
