Linear Algebra

Give a linear equation that expresses volume,V,in terms of Temperature, T

This is the first question of a 4 part problem. I just need help with how to start it. above is the 1st question to below problem: In some experiments, tathered data suggest that volume of gas and temperature are related quantities. In one particular experiment, at a temp. of -30 degrees C, the volume of a gas was measured t

Industrial application help

The two images below shows one of our attempts to come up with the rotation angle required. I believe that it does not work because we are using first order trig which assumes symmetry . Please comment on this assumption and or why it does not work. See attachment

Antisymmetric relations

Let R and S be antisymmetric relations on a set A. Does R union S have to be antisymmetric also? Give a counterexample if the answer is no and proof if it is yes.

Matrix Theory/ Isometries

Suppose A is a unitary matrix. (a) Show that there exists an orthonormal basis B of eigenvectors for A. (b) Let P be the associated change-of-basis matrix. Explain how to alter B such that P lies in SU(n).

Linear Algebra - Vector Spaces

Let P be the set of all polynomials. Show that P, with the usual addition and scalar multiplication of functions, forms a vector space. I'm just no good at proofs. I know we are supposed to go through and prove the Vector Space Axioms and the C1 and C2 closure properties. I just don't think I'm doing it successfully. I'm just
