Calculus What do you call these problems and where can I find more

  1. Sep 18, 2017 #1
    For example - the field due to a thin rod , proving shell theorem, moment of inertia, shape of a metal disk held over a flame, etc..

    In all of these you cleverly use infinitismal elements with the appropriate conditions and integrate. Im looking for more of these infinitismal element physics stuff. Well, need not even be physics honestly, . Some applied calculus based physics textbook perhaps?

    Thanks for the thread! This is an automated courtesy bump. Sorry you aren't generating responses at the moment. Do you have any further information, come to any new conclusions or is it possible to reword the post? The more details the better.

    These problems are there in any electrodynamics/classical mechanics book, but before you do that or if you just want to do vector calculus ( under which these problems are studied ) you need to get a multivariable calculus book.

    Moral of the story : Learn calculus of multivariate functions first then you can solve these problems.
