    Better Thermal Insulator for Glass - Neoprene or Silicone?

    I am looking to improve the thermal insulation on one of my favorite glass mugs. I am choosing between a silicone glove or a neoprene wrap. What is the difference between a silicone baking mat and silicone rubber? Does silicone or neoprene have better thermal insulation?

    Does an Induction Cooking Pan Need to be Completely Ferrous?

    Do you think that a ferrous plate at the bottom would suffice though? Or would a completely ferrous pan be significantly better?

    Does an Induction Cooking Pan Need to be Completely Ferrous?

    I ask, "Does a ferrous pan for Induction Cooking need to be Completely Ferrous?" In other words, could just the bottom of the pan be a ferrous material for good inductive heat induction? Could I have a ferrous bottom, and ferrous sides that turn to a non-ferrous material after a couple...

    Question on Surface Integral and Flux

    Alright, so the corss product of two vectors will give me a vector that is perpendicular to the plane (which is in the direction that I want). I'm not sure what these vectors would be? How do I know what vectors to cross?

    Question on Surface Integral and Flux

    Homework Statement I have a coordinate system, (x,y,z). There is a uniform-magnetic-field of 2.0 T that exists along the direction of the y-axis. There is a rectangular plane bounded by the points (3,0,0),(0,1,0),(0,1,1),(3,0,1). Calculate how much flux is traveling through the rectangular...

    Finding Omega and Zeta from a Magnitude and Phase Plot

    Yes, I am assuming that the AFM cantilever is being modeled as a second order system. With the cantilever tune, the phase curve is set to 90° of the resonant frequency. So would I be close enough in estimating that the natural frequency is 72.7 kHz?

    Finding Omega and Zeta from a Magnitude and Phase Plot

    I was able to calculate the value for the damping ratio; but I am having trouble finding the value of the natural frequency. Any ideas on how to solve for the natural frequency?

    Finding Omega and Zeta from a Magnitude and Phase Plot

    Could you elaborate? Where does this -3dB bandwidth come from? Is Q inversely related to the damping ratio, ζ? Thanks for your help.

    Classic Football Kick Problem

    I dont see what you're getting at. I know there are these two equations, I need to solve a variable deltat to get one variable left. After I try to do that step, I get a ridiculous equation that I need to solve for theta. Is there any other process of doing this problem?

    Classic Football Kick Problem

    I attempted to solve for deltat, but when I plugged delta t from the 2nd equation into the first equation i get a long equation with costheta- costhetasintheta. I'm confused

    Classic Football Kick Problem

    my answers dont seem to be working. I get for the largest angle possible: 54= 27^2sin(theta)^2/ (9.8) = .8520=sintheta= 58 degrees. would that be correct for the larger angle?
