4. ### Theoretical Physics and Applied Maths

I have applied for a degree in TPAM, theoretical physics and applied maths at Birmingham. I just want confirmation: This degree is filled with a lot of maths similar to that found in the Further Pure syllabus of A-level, correct? I have seen third year notes from someone who took the same degree...
5. ### Applied maths, monotonic function

Hello, The equation is from a chemistry calculation; the textbook claims that the function is monotonic, without specifying whether it is monotonically increasing or decreasing. Depending on the starting conditions, the function can look different; I basically want to know if the following is...
6. ### Imperial QFFF vs Cambridge Part III

Hi there, this has probably been done to death on countless other threads, but I just thought it would be better to get more personal and actual direct replies by making my own post. I plan to go on and study theoretical physics and I've been accepted into both QFFF and Part III Applied Maths...
7. ### Solve Applied Maths Urgent Probl. 1: 20 Marks

Problem 1 20 marks (i) ˆx = (1, 0) and ˆy = (0, 1) are the Cartesian unit vectors and the vectors v1 and v2 are defined as v1 = −4ˆx + 0ˆy , v2 = 2ˆx − 7ˆy . Determine the polar coordinate unit vectors ˆr and ˆθ for v1 and v2 and hence express v1 and v2 as a linear combination of ˆr and ˆθ. [4]...
8. ### What is r hat (^) like exactly and how do you calculate it?

Homework Statement What is r hat (^) like exactly and how do you calculate it? I know that it is something to do with unit vectors and that it should be gotten in some form of cosi + sinj like I had to input geometry co ordinates x1,y1 and stuff Any help at all will be appreciated
9. ### What is R hat in physics?

Hi I am struggling big time with Physics and vectors and I keep coming across r hat (^) like what is it exactly and how do you calculate it? Thanks in advance
10. ### MHB Challenging Applied maths question projectiles

An aircraft flies at a constant height H and constant velocity V. When the aircraft has flown directly over a gun on the ground a shot is fired from the gun which points at the aircraft at an angle of elevation Ѳ. If the initial velocity of the bullet is KVsecѲ [k >1], and Ѳ =tan inverse[...

hi I'm a math undergraduate and looking for books about fluid dynamics, electromagnetism, classical mechanics and quantum mechanics. introductory to intermediate level. would prefer books with lots of examples and include good amount of graphs and diagrams. thanks!
12. ### Good applied maths book undergraduate level

I am a maths undergraduate and looking for a book that covers many applied maths topics, such as electromagnetism, fliud dynamics, Newtonian mechanics etc., about introductory to intermediate level. I know it'd be hard to find one that contains all of them so if u have any suggestion on only 1...
13. ### MHB Complex Number Problems in Applied Maths

This is a thread for complex number problems in applied mathematics. 1. Prove that: 1 + cos x + cos 2x + ...cos (n - 1)x = {1 - cos x + cos (n - 1)x - cos nx} / 2 (1 - cos x) = 1/2 + [{sin (n - 1/2)x}/2sin (x/2)]2. If a = cos x + i sin x, b = cos y + i sin y, c = cos z +...
14. ### Math Pure or Applied maths with stats

Hi all, This post will be long, but I hope in giving more relevant information, the replies will be more helpful. Apologies for the length, and thanks for reading, given now. I'll state the question here though to avoid you having to search for it: Does it make any real difference whether...
15. ### Online MS in applied maths or physics

Hi all, I am an engineer and I would like to take an online master in applied mathematics or physics - I am interested in several subjects in both field, so right now I am open to either choice. To prevent common comments I saw in other post, let me point out I hold a PhD in Aerospace...

(a) A particle of mass 4 kg moves under a force: F = 6t^2i - tj - 4k in Newtons. Assuming that the particle is initially at the origin with velocity v = i + k in m/s, find its position after 1s. (b) A ball of mass m travels with velocity 3 m/s and collides with a second ball with mass 2m at...
17. ### Hi i'm an applied maths student i'd like to study about catenary

hi I'm an applied maths student i'd like to study about catenary.. where can i get details of catenary and its applications in detail?which book i can refer or is there any website i can go for?

Simple question: Say I get an undergraduate degree in applied mathematics, and I take a lot of engineering electives during this time. How likely is it that I would be able to go to graduate school for engineering? Also, are there areas of study (in mathematics) that are very intimately tied...

20. ### Best wishes,HarleyNeed help with applied maths problems?

Hi, Can anybody help with solving the attached problems please? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks
21. ### Pure maths > Applied Maths

I always get the impression that pure maths is more superior meaning harder, grander than applied maths and that the smart people on average go into pure maths. Is this a misconception? Also rarely is it that applied mathematicians switch into pure maths but the vice versa is plentiful. I do...
22. ### Courses Course Selection for 2nd Year (Applied Maths, Physics, etc.)

This is a very long story; please bare with me! I am a first year undergrad student nearing the end of the year. I am from South Africa (at the University of Cape Town). The way it is here, is that for your undergrad degree, it is standard to take two or one majors. In first year you take 4...
