DerivativesQuick question in case anyone is awake at this time. #2 20100625 19:16:05
Re: DerivativesHi Anakin; Set that equal to 0 and solve for theta Plug it back into the original equation. x = 479.1149 cm This is straight from my notes, but I remember this problem. I google for it and come up with this. http://ca.answers.yahoo.com/question/in … 608AAWEw2N I have a numerical solution that is more interesting. 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. #3 20100625 19:32:55
Re: DerivativesAnd that is the correct answer! Last edited by Anakin (20100625 19:34:26) #4 20100625 19:36:42

Re: DerivativesSorry for the late reply, didn't see the last part of your post. As for the question, I'm not so sure of the name. We just get sheets photocopied from the same book. I'll let you know when I get back today from the dreadful exam. 8) Last edited by Anakin (20100625 20:25:13) #6 20100625 20:26:58
