    Deriving the constant acceleration formulas using functional notation.

    Hi, So I was trying to develop a more in-depth understanding of the constant acceleration equations, especially v^2 = u^2+2as. I found a video showing the derivation of this formula: JnFykw00HvE His logic goes like this. 1: Acceleration is the derivative of velocity w.r.t. time. a = dv/dt...

    How to rewrite these formulas in the opposite form?

    I want to know how I can write from some predicate formula its negative form. For example ∀x∃y(x R y) then not(∀x∃y(x R y)) is equal to ∃x,not ∃y(x R y)))(not exist y) How do these formula work with conjunction implication and disjunction? Bellow are examples of some formulas but...

    Reference / book that shows geometrical proof to formulas?

    Hi MMF, returning to math study, I understand concepts best when seeing things visually, like Pythagorean Theorem proof, completing the square, unit circle etc. What's a good reference site and/or book that gives visual diagrams, even up through Calculus if possible?

    Why are things squared in formulas about light, space etc.

    As a beginning math student I've wondered: why is the square prominent in math formulas about the natural world, instead of the circle? Circular light beams, elliptical solar systems and galaxies, Inverse Square Law, seem to me better defined in terms of the circle than squares, which don't...

    Square root formulas

    I deduced a simpler formula for the square root using only one trigonometric function "acos", it is a controllable precision formula in advance, the correct decimals 2n are controlled by choosing n, based on the discovery of a pattern, the square root is proportional to the angle...

    Double and Half Angle Formulas

    I'm really in a bad mood and need help solving these two problems. I had a terrible Pre-Calculus teacher and know almost nothing about Trigonometry. We're starting to move more into Trig in my Calculus class and I'm lost. This is a formula I want to learn more about and I've tried to familiarize...

    Having trouble with formulas (Equations & Transpositions)

    Solve for A b = 1/2h (A + C) My first step is to minus C on both sides so I got b - C = 1/2h A then i flip the 1/2 to 2/1 so it's b - C = 2h A My second step is to divide both sides by 2h.. b-c/2h = A But in my text book it says the answer is A = 2b/h - C I don't get it...

    Interesting thing about graphs (adding x! to formulas)

    I was just playing with a graph drawing software and noticed something very interesting. The graph of y = x! , when going further into negative X, turned into a straight line with infinitely long vertical lines coming out of it to both positive and negative Y at every whole number. Basically it...

    What and When

    I am really having a hard time understanding which formula to use for which type of problem or when to use a certain formula.:confused: I see when working problems that if I work it too long to get the answer, I should not have. And if I don't work a problem long enough, I should have kept on...

    Is This True About Summation Formulas?

    I looked up that the summation formula for x^3 is the square of the summation formula for x. In other words (1 + 2 + 3 +…)^2 = 1^3 + 2^3 + 3^3 + … and I want to know if that means the summation formula for x^6 would be the square of the summation formula for x^2 because (x^3)^2 = x^6 and...
