Band around the EarthI have a problem with the solution! When the solution is stated they subtract formulas, but the original formula is in kilometers and the "added" measurement is in meters. Instead of 10, shouldn't it read .01. #2 20110725 22:01:55

Re: Band around the EarthHi djohnstone3; 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. #4 20110725 22:20:00

Re: Band around the EarthYou do have the correct problem. The error occurs when the solution uses 10 kilometers as the added distance, when in fact the added distance is .01 kilometers. #7 20110727 00:12:16

That looks like 10 meters to me. Last edited by bob bundy (20110727 00:15:57) You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #8 20120110 05:28:58
