re Wolfram enginehi Is there a way to tell the software that r is a function of h ? You may recognise this from another thread. Thanks, Bob You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #2 20130114 22:23:58
Re: re Wolfram engineIt depends on the type of dependence between r and h...

Re: re Wolfram engineYou mean (kh)^2, bobbym?

Re: re Wolfram enginehi bobbym and Stefy
Well it's not exactly a tough integral is it? So you could also say "Why not just do it yourself?" And I have, of course! You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #7 20130115 06:34:36
Re: re Wolfram engineHi;
Nope, k is a constant, so I am thinking k = k^2.
Not that I know of. 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. #8 20130115 06:44:02
Re: re Wolfram enginehi bobbym
Not in my world, please. That k is important to me. I'm thinking of naming it "Bob's constant". So you'll have to pay royalties just to use it! You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #9 20130115 06:50:22

WHAT! You must be joking! At least you are on this planet! And in honour (honor?) of the respect I have for you I hereby grant you lifetime permission to use Bob's constant whenever you wish, free of charge and without the requirement to acknowledge whose constant it is.

Re: re Wolfram engineHi;
Well, at least I have that going for me.
Wish I could get off but they won't take me. There is one major difference between me and that fellow, if you hit me on the head three times hard with a hammer you can change my mind.

Re: re Wolfram engineJust a feeling.

Re: re Wolfram engineThat is true, but replying to "him" doesn't have a point either.
