Re: Measure length without bend ?There is no keeping that separate. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #54 20131122 11:28:43
Re: Measure length without bend ?Okay, thank you. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #55 20131122 12:25:44

Re: Measure length without bend ?Yes, I will use the picture, it is already half done but there are still theoretical problems that the OP has not considered. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.

Re: Measure length without bend ?What do you understand by height with a bend and height without a bend? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun.

Re: Measure length without bend ?Height to the OP is 11.76 cm. The drawing is a little off but manageable. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Measure length without bend ?and how long is your kitchen? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: Measure length without bend ?Even I can not answer that question and I see it every day. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #62 20131122 12:52:03
Re: Measure length without bend ?you should fire up Mathematica. 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: Measure length without bend ?That is a good idea but I would not torture Mathematica with that problem. It is ill posed. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #64 20131122 13:08:39
Re: Measure length without bend ?LucidLynx' problem is not well posed either 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.' 'God exists because Mathematics is consistent, and the devil exists because we cannot prove it' 'Who are you to judge everything?' Alokananda #65 20131122 13:11:28
Re: Measure length without bend ?At present I would say that it is not. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #67 20131122 14:00:44
Re: Measure length without bend ?I'd like to know why you want this problem to be solved 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.' 'God exists because Mathematics is consistent, and the devil exists because we cannot prove it' 'Who are you to judge everything?' Alokananda #68 20131122 14:03:40
Re: Measure length without bend ?
I have not solved it yet so there is nothing to tell. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #69 20131122 19:41:40

Re: Measure length without bend ?Hi Bob; In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #71 20131123 00:27:57
Re: Measure length without bend ?I think there are physics equations that describe the state of objects under the deformation of bending. I'll look 'em up.
