    You can't just post questions verbatim in the homework thread - we are here to help and explain not just to copy out answers.
    Especially when you were told about this yesterday and have simply reposted the same questions as a new thread.
    Irrespective of the official sanctions about this, people will simply start ignoring any threads by you.

    I suggest you look at wikipedia first then come back and ask about any specific points you don't understand.
