2. ### SOme help with intergration by parts,

SOme help with intergration by parts, plz [b]1. Find: \int e^x cos (x) dx The Attempt at a Solution I tried using integration by parts - what we are working on... all these 3 possibilities: u = cos x, u= e^x, u = e^x cos(x) And the \int vdu are, respectively: 1. \int e^x sin(x) dx...
3. ### Need help: integration by substitution.

Hello all, how are you? we are currently working on integration by substitution, what do you guys think about the way i solved this one: Find: \int \frac{(t+1)^2}{t^2} dt My solution: \int \frac{(t+1)^2}{t^2} dt = \int 1dt + \int \frac{2}{t} dt + \int \frac{1}{t^2} dt = t +...
4. ### Definite Integral prob

Hello, Okay so I was given a density function: f(x) = 2e^(-0.25x) The problem asks for the value of Pr(X < or = 3) I first figured out the probability density function first by let \int (3,0) k.25e^(-.25x) = 1 And figured out that k = .45 and continue solving my...

10. ### People who can let electricity flows through their bodies

Well, I've heard about some people who can let electricity flows through their bodies without any serious damage. Is there any sciebtific reason or theory for this? Is that the resistance f them 0 or nearly so? What do you think?
11. ### Absolute equation problems.

Hello, Well, I have the equation: x^2-2x-m|x-1|+m^2=0 (1) They ask me what m is so that the equation has solution(s) Well, I let t=|1+x| and solve the problem with t (no more x) and I have the last equation: t^2-mt+m^2-1=0 (2) in order that (1) has solution(s), (2) must have solution(s) t...
12. ### Basic Chemistry problem

Well, hello! I was informed a new formula. As a non-native, I can't give out the definitons, I hope that you can help me call some. Well, here is the formula: \Delta=\frac{2+\Sigma n_i (V_i-2)}{2} Well, as far as I can say, \Delta here is equal to the total of the linkage C=C+ number of...
