Hey all. This is about Ohm's Law (and specifically resistance). When you plot the change in current vs the change in voltage you should get a linear trend line (providing it is from an ohmic device). The gradient should be the resistance. My questions is why does the gradient value need to be...
Hi all,
I would like to know what is the equation upon which I can use to determine the practical resonance frequencies in a system of second order, linear differential equations.

Hey all,
I don't understand what makes a differential equation (DE) linear.
I found this: "x y' = 1 is nonlinear because y' is not multiplied by a constant"
but then also this: "x' + (t^2)x = 0 is linear in x".
t^2 also isn't a constant.
So why is this equation linear?

Hello!
I have a question that maybe has to do more with Mathematics, but if you do experimental physics you find it quite often.
Let's assume that we want to measure two quantities x and y that we know that they relate to each other linearly. So we have a set of data points xi and yi...
Hi, I have in a previous thread discussed the case where:
\begin{equation}
TT' = T'T
\end{equation}
and someone, said that this was a case of nonlinear operators. Evidently, they commute, so their commutator is zero and therefore they can be measured at the same time. What makes them however...
Hi, I read that linear combinations of a state, Psi, can be as:
\begin{equation}
\Psi = \alpha \psi + \beta \psi
\end{equation}
where ##\alpha## and ##\beta## are arbitrary constants.
Can however this be a valid linear combination?
\begin{equation}
\Psi = \alpha \psi \times \beta \psi...

12/11 x 10 + 54/11 I get 66/99. Is this right? If so how do I put it into the graph.
12/11 x 10 = 120/110 + 54/11 = 66/99 (I think I've went wrong somewhere)
