1. New XGL Demo

Doesn't XGL currently run on top of X? Ya compiz and xgl are good stuff. But currently does not support many video outputs, and dual screen. But fun to test out.
2. Thorium Chemical Equations

Anyone know where I could find a couple of chemical equations for Thorium. I need them for a project I am currently doing. I have not been able to find any.:uhh: Thank you.:smile:
3. DVD's in Linux

Not illegal if you dont live in the U.S. :tongue2:
4. DVD's in Linux

ya, amarok is my fav music player, and the xine engine is alot better quality than gstream and arts. I dont want qt libs on gnome, so now i use rhythmbox :grumpy: . have you tried vlc?, best in my opinion.
5. Finding Critical Numbers

hmmm, ive heard of the newton-raphson algorithm, but we never learned it in class. ill check out that prog.:smile: thank you.
6. DVD's in Linux

oh really? , never knew that, good too know.:smile:

8. DVD's in Linux

um, try kaffine.
9. Finding Critical Numbers

ya, i know, i though no one visited the mathematics section, because i was only able to join it by using the search tool. Also, i put a note for someone to delete my post in the other section.:smile: btw, i posted back on you reply.:tongue2:
10. Finding Critical Numbers

Thats what I got, but I couldnt figure out how to solve the tan 2x = 2x. How would I be able to solve it? I tried to graph it, but the points that came out, did not work in the equation.:yuck: So, do I go with x=0 only? edit: my teacher said, I was gonna use decimals on this problem. edit...

12. Finding Critical Numbers

Well, I got this equation f(x)=\frac{2\sin{2x}}{x} [-\pi,\pi] So I took the 1st derivative, f'(x)=\frac{2(2x\cos{2x} - \sin{2x})}{x^2} Then I set that equal to 0, and got 0=2x\cos{2x} - \sin{2x} But I do not see how to get the critical numbers, I also tried to do double angle, but that...

14. Ap Calculus help.

http://img.mauj.com/an/b/BowingSmiley.gif [Broken] thank you. very much. :) spent 2 hours on this and its late, time for sleep. thanks again.:smile:
15. Ap Calculus help.

so (2,0) is the only answer?
16. Ap Calculus help.

so i put in 2, get 4x^2 + 3x +6, looks like a mr quadradic to me.:grumpy: edit: roar!, mr quad come out a bad choice. so only one answer? (2,0)?
17. Ap Calculus help.

a= (-6/a^2) - (1/2)?????? i dont know, seems like this question could take up a long, long time. this is supposedly an ap free response question. im thinking this question, is a little too long, to be on a timed test.
18. Ap Calculus help.

hmmm, so b = 3a^3 - 2a^2 - 4a - 8 b = a^3 - a^2 - 4a + 4 0=-2a^3 +a^2 +12 yuck, im sure this wasnt suppose to happen. :( edit: somehow, i think im making it harder than it seems, looks like a very simple problem. :\
19. Wilma, I'm Home

pray! I live in Florida also, just moved from Naples to Ocala, so im a bit safer.:rolleyes:
20. Ap Calculus help.

This somehow seems easy, but I cannot get the jist of it. f(x) = x^3 - x^2 - 4x + 4 The point (a,b) is on the graph of f and the line tangent to the graph at (a,b) passes through the point (0,-8) which is not on the graph of f. Find the values of a and b. okay so, ive spent about an...
21. What line comes next in the sequence?

Please, tell the how you got this awnser, i might have to pull all my hair off. :rolleyes:
22. Interference and Diffraction of Light!

thank you very much, would of helped if it was yesturday, i figured it out later on, but many thanks for helping. :biggrin:
23. Interference and Diffraction of Light!

I didnt go to school today, and so missed day of class, now i all lost someone help. White light is incident normal to the surface of the film as shown below. It is observed that at a point where the light is incident on the film, light reflected from the surface appears green (lamda = 525...
24. Without using a calculator

I second that.:)
25. Ip Tracing

im famous to, :). None of the websites that track ip can tell you exactly were people are, most are off a city or two, or not close at all if they use proxys as dduardo said.
26. Permanently block certain processes anti virus

norton is not even a antivirus i think, it does not detect alot of viruses, and takes most of the ram of you computer. I would do as said above, reinstall windows from a new cd, because sometimes store bought computers have alot of advertisement on them, and if you try to remove it windows...
27. Without using a calculator

2^48 without a calculator? Wow, i must of been gone way to long. :uhh:
28. Fluids at Rest!

While exploring a sunken ocean liner, the principal researcher found hte absolute pressure on the robot observatino submarine at the level of the ship to be about 413 atmospheres. The density of seawater is 1025-kg/m^3. Calculate the gauge pressure p_g on the sunken ocean liner...
