    Bifocul Optics Problem Help Please

    Homework Statement A woman is wearing bifocals that have one-half of the lens with a power of -1.2 D and the other with a power of 1.8 D. A lens provides her with a far point set at infinity and other will give her a near point of 25 cm. Where are her near point and far point WITHOUT her...

    Schools Grad School

    Hello, I am a undergraduate Physics student and I heard that if you pursue a graduate degree in Physics for grad school (not undergraduate) the department pays your tuition for you? Is this true? I have 5 friends that they have finished undergraduate physics (payed their OWN tuition) but...

    The Geometry of Maps (Help)

    Homework Statement Let D* = [0,1] x [0,1] and define T on D* by T(x*,y*) = (x*y*, x*). Determine the image set D. Is T one-to-one? Homework Equations The Attempt at a Solution Okay... So I know it is not one to one, if you take out the point (x=0) then it is one-to-one, so you...

    Vector Calculus Question (I don't understand)

    Homework Statement Let D* = [0,1]x[0,1] and define T on D* by T(u,v)=(-u^2+4u, v). Find the image D. Is T one-to one Homework Equations The Attempt at a Solution I have no idea... I don't know how to do it. The solution is [0,3] x [0,1]... yes it is one to one. am I supposed...

    Absolute Max/Min

    Can anyone tell me the general procedure in doing the following procedure? f(x,y)=xy^2 with domain x^2+y^2\leq4 Find it's absolute max & absolute min. Okay, here is my thought procedure, tell me what I can fix. So I would basically say, find the partial derivatives with respect to x and y...

    Differential Equations WTF?

    Okay, so I was sitting in my room wondering about the differential operator D. Like for example, solving the equation y\prime\prime+5y\prime+4y=0 introduce D=\frac{d}{dx} (D^2+5D+4)y=0 so you can solve it by doing D=-4, D=-1 e^-^4^x+e^-^x is the solution But how the hell do you solve...

    Syl & Der

    Me and my friend Syl consistently talk about Special Relativity and it's effects in nature when electrodynamic bodies move at relativistic speeds. I wanna make a discussion. What is Special Relativity? How does it work? How much do we understand?

    Differential Equations (2)

    I'm having trouble setting up this solution can anyone give me a hint, or set it up, so I can see if what i'm doing is right? xy\prime=y=e^x^y using the substitution u\equiv(xy)

    Riemann Zeta Function Z(z)

    I was wondering how do you calculate the Riemann value, of a Riemann Zeta Function, for example the riemann zeta function for n = 0, is -1/2, which envolves a bernoulli number (what is a bernoulli number and what roll does it play in the Riemann Zeta Function), can anyone explain that to me...
