Hello there,
I had another similar post, where asking for proof for Hilbert’s Hotel.
After rethinking this topic, I want to show you a new example. It tries to show why that the sentence, every guest moves into the next room, hides the fact, that we don’t understand what will happen in this...
Hilberts Hotel has infinity numbers of rooms and in every room is exactly one guest.
On Wikipedia Hilberts Hotel gets described as well:
Suppose a new guest arrives and wishes to be accommodated in the hotel. We can (simultaneously) move the guest currently in room 1 to room 2, the guest...
From integration by parts, and using y(10) = 0, I get the equation ##2e^{3t-30} = \frac{|y-2|}{|y+1|}.##
Let ##f(t) = 2e^{3t-30}##.
Since it's for t>10, f(10) = 2, and we have ##2=\frac{|y-2|}{|y+1|}##. Depending on the sign I choose to use, I get either that y=-4 or y =0. Since ##t: 10...
In Mathematical Methods in the Physical Sciences by Mary Boas, the author defines the Laplace transform as...
$${L(f)=}\int_0^\infty{f(t)}e^{-pt}{dt=F(p)}$$
The author then states that "...since we integrate from 0 to ##\infty##, ##{L(f)}## is the same no matter how ##{f(t)}## is defined for...
First off, this is just an assumption. My knowledge of the field is extremely limited and I beg you to come and correct my mistakes, so I can learn.
So, I guess we all know how that space-time fabric is bended by gravity. When a star dies, all of the atoms are brought extremely close...
While using L' Hospital's rule in evaluating limits, one comes across limits of the following type: $$\lim_{x \to 0} x \ln x$$ Such limits are generally evaluated by taking ##x## to the denominator and make it ##x^{-1}##. In such a case, an indeterminate form ##\frac{\infty}{\infty}## comes...
Is infinity truly infinite if it has something else in it?
Put differently, say there's an infinite volume of water that has some rocks in it, is the volume of water truly infinite? Though there's a place where there's no water?
I'm writing some notes on set theory, Aleph Null, etc., and was wondering if there's a Notation or Symbol that abbreviates this (inaccessible/strong/uncountable etc. cardinals). I'm not sure if ive seen notation before but it seems like symbols resembling Theta and phi have been used.
Now I expect that most of you on this forum would be familiar with the equality between point nine reoccurring and one:
0.999...=1
If your not familiar please review https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/0.999...
Now this equality can be used to imply something else, which is rather heterodox...
I have read some of the other posts about this topic but am still left unsatisfied. Could just be me. :cool:
Did the universe, one minute after the big bang, consist of a finite volume of spacetime?
If so, then is it not logically inconsistent that the universe can possibly be infinite now...

The Attempt at a Solution
let y = lim x->0+ x^cos(1/x)
lny = cos(1/x)*lnx = (x*cos(1/x)) * (lnx/x)
x*cos(1/x) = 0 (sandwich theorem)
lnx/x = 0 (l'hopital)
so lny = 0
and y = 1
Is this correct?

Hello!
I'm doing a school project, where I am writing about Infinity in Math and Physics. I've got the math part settled, but it's the physics part that has begun to bother me.
One part of my task is to write about some of the mathematical expressions in physics, where we use infinity - but the...
Hey guys! I have heard of this concept in various places and sort of understands what it attempts to do. Can anybody please explain it to me in more detail like how it works, how to notate it, and how to expand it to infinities and infinitesimals. Thanks in advance!

Hello.
First of all, I must say that I'm new to this forum, so I apologize if I'm posting in the wrong section.
I'm a 17 year old with not that much knowledge about physics, so if what I'm talking about makes no sense or is completely stupid, just let me know.
A couple of days ago I asked...

The Attempt at a Solution
Ln(x^2-1)/(2x^2+3)
Then I divided the top and bottom by x^2 so in the end I got (1/2).
Is this right?

The first thing I did was convert it into a radical so it becomes fifthroot√x^3 - fifthroot√x.
Then I rationalized to get ( x^3-x)/(fifthrt√x^3+fifthroot√x) . I then divided the top by...
The (most popular) flat model of Universe is space-infinite. How the infinity is measured? Can you give me references to the papers about the actual infinity of space?
When we talk about a particular problem in Physics. For instance, let's say that light is coming from somewhere to hit the earth. We often say that the light is coming from "infinity." Let's say that we're tackling a black hole and we have a person somewhere as an example and we say that let's...
The universe- from our understanding, is expanding, thus the regions (for lack of a better word) particles have not yet reached do not exist. How far our universe can/ will expand is unknown, it may be infinite, but we can conclude at this time, as it is still expanding, that it is finite. True...
I know this thread, about why the Universe can't expand inward, is fairly old; but I stumbled across it today and there was something mentioned here that sparked a question I feel like people here would be qualified to answer. What was mentioned, was that a singularity is a point at which our...
To what extent is the term infinity used in the physical world.
When talking in terms of mathematics we can have a set of all natural numbers called an infinity, then we can have a value that comes after this set of infinity (lets call it 'a'). After 'a' comes 'a+1' then after this set of...
With basic fractions, the limits of 1/x as x approaches infinity or zero is easily determine:
For example,

\lim_{x\to\infty} \frac{1}{x} = 0
\end{equation}
\begin{equation}
\lim_{x\to 0} \frac{1}{x} = \infty
\end{equation}
But, we with a operation like ##\frac{f(x)}{g(x)}##...

So I derived the E-field of a hollow sphere with a surface charge σ at z and I got:
E(r)=\hat{z}\frac{\sigma R^2}{2\varepsilon _{0}z^2}\left ( \frac{R+z}{\left | R+z \right |}-\frac{R-z}{\left | R-z \right |} \right )
at z>R, the equation becomes:
