Initial-Value Problem : Euler and Runge-Kutta Method

Solve the following initial value problem by Euler's method using h = 0.1. Find an error by comparing to exact solution. Then solve it by the Runge-Kutta method. Find an error. dy/dx = 3xy²; y(0) = 1; 0 ≤ x ≤ 1

Richter Scale and Severity of Earthquakes: Energy and Magnitude

The Richter Scale provides a comparative measure of the severity of earthquakes. The original formula developed in 1935 was: R = logE, where R is the magnitude on the Richter Scale and E is the energy of the of the earthquake. (a) How much stronger than a 5.0 is an earthquake that measures 7.0 on the Richter Scale? (b) What wo

Evaluate Functions for Given Value of X

Evaluate the functions for th values of x given as 1, 2, 4, 8, and 16. Describe the differences in the rate at which each function changes with increasing values of x (i.e. is there a pattern in the change, did the values double, or triple, increase by a certain factor, etc. 1. f(x) = 3x -2 2. f(x) =x2 - 5x +6 3. f (x) =x3

Symmetry: Symmetries of a Square

Please see the attached file for the fully formatted problems. ? Let S be a square, with vertices labelled (anticlockwise), 1,2,3,4. a symmetry of S is a rotation or reflection which preserves the square (although it may change the position of the vertices). Note that a symmetry is determined by its effect on the vertices.

Find the Supremum (supS) and the infimum (infS) and indicate if supS is in the set S and if infS is in the set S: S = {r in N: r^2 <= 15} S = {r in Q: r^2 <= 15)} S = {[(/1)^n][(n-1)/n]: n in N} S = {x in R: x^2 + x - 1 < 0}

Surface area of a right circular cylinder

The surface area of a right circular cylinder is given by the formula S= 2*PIE SIGN*rh + 2*PIE SIGN* r^2, where r is the radius of the base, and h is the height of the cylinder. Solve the formula S= 2*PI*rh + 2*PI*r^2 for h.

Complex Theorem for Continuous Anti-Derivative

Although Corollary 2 does not apply to the function 1 / (z — z_0) in the plane punctured at z_0, Theorem 6 can be used as follows to show that (see attached 1) for any circle C traversed once in the positive direction surrounding the point z_0. Introduce a horizontal branch cut from z_0 to infinity as in Fig. 4.25. In the r

Square Root Symbols in a Function

Here's the formula... The answer should be 4, which should be W S=10 T=5 w=4 w=33-(10 - 0.28 x S + square root of 28xS ) x ( 33 - T ) / 22.727 so.. the square root symbol was over top of 28 and S just don't know how to put that symbol in here... so.. you work from left to right... and you do what's in the ( )
