    Some limits manipulation.

    Could someone explain the steps involved in this limit? I'm reading a proof and kinda stuck here. For k \in \mathbb{Z}^+ and c a positive constant, set \beta_k = c \sqrt{\frac{k}{\ln(k)}} and \delta_k = \frac{\ln(\frac{k}{\beta_k})}{k}. Then \lim\limits_{k \to \infty} (\beta_k(1-\delta_k)^k +...

    Differentiating the equation of curvature equation

    Hi everyone, The equation for the curvature(k) is the following: (1) k = (y'')/((1+(y')^2)^3/2) For small deflections, this is just simplified to y'' (the numerator) In beam theory the following equation is used: (2) EIy'' + Py = 0, where the y'' is referring to the simplified curvature...

    I require a hint in solving this indefinite integral.

    The problem I want to solve is this \int\frac{ (\sin^n \theta - \sin\theta)^{1/n} \cos\theta}{\sin^{n+1}\theta} d\theta Now, if I make a substitution of u = \sin\theta then, the integral would look like this \int \frac{(u^n -u)^{1/n}}{u^{n+1}}du . No matter what substitution I make the...

    Does the Finite Calculus exist?

    Does the Calculus of Finite Differences exist as an extended field of Advanced Mathematics? (Please, don't confuse it for Discrete Mathematics.) Is it the synonym of the Discrete Calculus? Is it applicable for Pure & Applied Physics nowadays? Could you recommend some resources for such subject?

    Comparing large numbers without calculus

    A curious logical consequence of the principle of non-contradiction is that a contradiction implies any statement; if a contradiction is accepted as true, any proposition (or its negation) can be proved from it. Let's try (*)66^{77} > 77^{66} . I will prove (*) using sgn function(analytic...

    Which of the following statements is correct ?

    This is a question from a college admission exam. There is a mistake in the attachment. f is derivative not differentiable.

    Why radians and not degrees in calculus?

    I know it's stating the obvious elephant in the room when it comes to calculus and that you should always use radian measure anytime you use trig'; I've just always accepted it as a rule. But I've never once witnessed someone give a sound geometrical argument why this is so. Could someone give...

    Multivariable calculus - Limits

    Show that the function f(x,y)=y/(x-y) for x→0, y→0, can take any limit. Construct the sequences { f(xn, yn } with (xn,yn)→(0, 0) in such way that the lim n→∞ f(xn,yn) is 3,2,1,0,−2. Hint: yn=kxn. I am not sure whether I am right, but I did the following: f(x,y) = kxn/(xn−kxn) =...

    Help Needed please I don't know where to start from.

    The question is. Consider the function f(x)=sqrt(x)/sin(x),0<x<pi Show that the x coordinate of the minimum point on the curve y=f(x) satisfies the equation tan x=2x the question is worth 5 marks/points
