Real-Life Applications of Relations Versus Functions and Reversal of Variables

Where in the real world might be a situation arise where it would be preferable for data to form a relation but not a function? Please explain it to me in detail - thanks! If the varibles in an equation were reversed, what would happen to the graph of the equation? Here's an example of what I'm asking: how would the graph of

Water Flow Supplied by a Sprinkler

A sprinkler distributes water in a circular pattern, supplying water to a depth of {see attachment} feet per hour at a distance of {see attachment} feet from the sprinkler. A) What is the total amount of water supplied per hour inside of a circle of radius 17? B) What is the total amount of water that goes through the

Sketching the graph of a swimming fish's energy

Any help is greatly appreciated; I found this problem pretty frustrating. I replaced the "less than" symbol with the words "less than" because the computer seemed to have a hard time recognizing the symbol. "For a fish swimming at a speed v relative to the water, the energy expenditure per unit time is proportional to v^3.

Singular Point : Pole and Residue

2. Show that the singular point of each of the following functions is a pole. Determine the order m of that pole and the corresponding residue B. {please see attachment for functions} Please specify the terms that you use if necessary and clearly explain each step of your solution.


7.4.2 Show that the following family is not complete by finding at least one nonzero function u(x) such that E[u(X)]=0, for all theta >0. f(x; theta)= 1/(2*theta), -theta <x< theta where 0<theta<infinity and 0 elsewhere. The answer is Xbar.
