Spherical Symmetry, Wave Equations and Continuity

Please see the attached file for the fully formatted problems. I accept the possibility that there is a typo in part (c) and that instead it asks you to show that u_t is discontinuous at (0,a/c) instead of u.

Transformations of Graphs of Trigonometric Functions

Describe the transformations required to obtain the graph of the given function from a basic trigonometric graph. 43. y=0.5 sin 3x How do you come up with the following answer? starting from y=sinx, horizontally shrink by 1/3 and vertically shrink by 0.5 45. y= -2/3 cos x/3 How do you come up with the following answer? s

Trigonometry and Plotting Trigonometric Equations

Two wheels are rotating in such a way that the rotation of the smaller wheel causes the larger wheel to rotate. The radius of the smaller wheel is 5.7 centimeters and the radius of the larger wheel is 18.1 centimeters. Through how many degrees will the larger wheel rotate if the smaller one roatates 151 degrees? ans. 47.55 deg

Trigonometric Limits

Graph the function f(x){sin pi/x if x is not equal to o {0 if x = 0 where -0.2<=x<=0.2. then graph f(x) where (x) varies over a smaller interval, for example, -.06<=x<=0.06. determine lim as x approaches o of sin(pi/x) if it exists. describe in a paragraph the behavior of the values of

Slope of Incline, Power and Energy

A. A tank of mass 80 metric tons is travelling at a uniform speed of 54 KM/hr on a level terrain. It then starts travelling uphill on an incline of 1 in 10 (sine slope). Calculate the extra power required from the engine in megawatts to maintain the same speed on the incline. b. When it has travelled 100m up the incline the d

Trigonometry and Vectors

A cable to the top of a tower makes an angle of 35 degrees with the level ground. At a point 100 yards closer to the tower the angle of elevation to the top of the tower is 59 degrees. Estimate the length of the cable. Approximate the angle between the vectors 4i-3J and 4i+3J

Trigonometry : Minimizing Pipeline

Oil is being piped from an offshore oil well to a refinery on land. The shoreline is considered straight, the well is 2 miles out to sea (i.e, at a right angle to the shore), the refinery is 10 miles along the coast, underwater pipe costs $360000/mile to construct, but the pipeline only costs $260000/mile on land. Given this how

A man holds a 178 N ball in his hand, with the forearm horizontal (see the drawing). He can support the ball in this position because of the flexor muscle force M, which is applied perpendicular to the forearm. The forearm weighs 20.2 N and has a center of gravity as indicated. (a) Find the magnitude of M. (b) Find the magnitude and direction of the force applied by the upper arm bone to the forearm at the elbow joint.
