    Happy new year for you all,
    This is very nice place, So girls and boys, let me give you something to play with:
    Integrate (r^.a)(r^.b)(r^.c)(r^.d) d(cos8)
    from cos8=1 to cos8=-1.
    a,b,c and d are constant vectors, r^ is the unit vector
    (iX+jY+kZ)/|r|, 8 is the spherical angle between r^ and Z-axis.
    The dot represents the scalar product.:approve:
    When you have done that, do this one:

    (a.r^)/(1+K.r^) d(cos8)
    the limits of integration same as befor, a and K are constant vectors.

    cheers

    :rofl: :rofl:

    I have to agree, I can't really tell what's supposed to be going on there with the carets. And integrating with respect to the number 8? Is that really what you meant?

    I've not noticed we could use [tex]8[/tex] instead of [tex]\theta [/tex] !:bugeye:

    [tex]\frac {2}{5} a b c d[/tex]

    I was tempted to say 0 because 8 is usually a constant so that d cos(8) = 0. ;)

    1) I don't have that "sometime".:rolleyes:
    2) It is to complicated for my little brain.:cry:

    just click on the equations and see how they wrote it... im sure youd figure it out...

    Find time :)

    And if you can integrate, i don't think its too complicated for you... especially with a program such as texaide

    The carets used to distinguish between a vector and its "unit vector":rofl::rofl:

    No. The 8 , as I said, is the spherical angle(do you remember theta), it is just a symbol:tongue2: :tongue2:

    Yes, now this answer is write, if 8 was a number, but it is not. So,even your temptation is wrong.:tongue2: :rofl:

    good luck

    the final answer has mixed parts of a b c and d in it, not only [tex]a_xb_x[/tex] etc. so it cant be abcd
