Thanks so much for your help! I graphed that, and since you solved to equation for 0 then turned 0 into y I looked for the x intercept of the graph and the value fit, thank you so much!
But just for the sake of knowing, how can you guys tell if an equation has no closed form solution?
Hmmm Alright. So I now have
7=a cosh(\frac{4}{a})+a
I guess I would move a over and divide by a to get
\frac{7-a}{a}=cosh(\frac{4}{a})
Now I don't know what to do. Is there some property of cosh in which I can pull something out or split something? We just started hyperbolic functions and...
1. Homework Statement
Solve for a
7=\frac{a}{2}(e^\frac{4}{a} + e^\frac{-4}{a}) + a
2. Homework Equations
7=\frac{a}{2}(e^\frac{4}{a} + e^\frac{-4}{a}) + a
3. The Attempt at a Solution
7=\frac{a}{2}(e^\frac{4}{a} + e^\frac{-4}{a}) + a
multiply by 2 on both sides
14=a(e^\frac{4}{a} +...

Hello All,
I was wondering, in the combined gass law \frac{p_{1}V_{1}}{T_{1}}=\frac{p_{2}V_{2}}{T_{2}} Does T_{1} and T_{2} have to be in kelvins, or can they be any other unit of temperature as long as a consistency of units is used?
Thanks

I'm currently using x for the various heights, with the top Isosceles triangle heights being x and the bottom trapezoid being 10-x, since the hight of the total large triangle that contains everything is ten. But thats what I have so far, what should I do about the bases of the various figures?
1. Homework Statement
Take an Isosceles triangle with a height of 10 and draw a line parallel to the base. How far from the top of the triangle does the drawn line have to be for the top half's area to equal the bottom half's area.
2. Homework Equations
The area of a triangle...
Re: Two points on a graph, the mid-point of a line made by these two points is an ori
Tiny Tim,
What do you mean convert y1+y2 into x1+x2?
Like this x_{1}+x_{2}=y_{1}+y_{2}
Or plug the equation of a parabola into the y1+y2?
Which would yield y=8x^{2}+14x-2, who's zeros are...

Hi All,
I was wondering about some equations/formulae related to Fusion. How much energy/what temperature does it take to initiate Fusion? And how is this amount of energy affected by the different element/isotopes used, pressure, magnetic attraction and other variables?
Thanks in advanced.

I am in the same math class as Um0123, and I currently have got
\frac{\sqrt{2n-1} - \sqrt{2n+1}}{-2}
would squaring the fraction be a step in the right direction?
