Finding the area of a region formed by two basic intersecting functions through integration; that of y = |x - 4| and y = x÷3. Have been practicing every day, to stay sharp for the upcoming fall semester.
Left, Right and Midpoint Riemann Sums are so very tedious. I would much rather use the definite integral notation. #Riemann #Sigma #Notation #Sums #Calculus #Equations #differentialcalculus #differential
#Albert #Einstein canvas print that I just got from Bed, Bath & Beyond. I saw it in their circular and I HAD to have it. It’s so awesome ..for a physics undergrad anyway… The print is suitably named, ‘It’s All Relative.’ #AlbertEinstein #Relativity #specialrelativity #generalrelativity #gravity #physicist #theoreticalphysics
I am so proud of my Brian Greene book collection!
Suprisingly, I found Icarus At The Edge of Time, The Fabric of The Cosmos, and the hardcover version of The Elegant Universe at Goodwill and thrift shops, paying less than 5 dollars for all three combined..
Whereas buying The Hidden Reality and paperback The Elegant Universe at popular book stores cost around 25 dollars per book.
A graphical representation of The #Lorentz #Transformation. A length-contraction formula straight out of #Special #Relativity.
It shows that as something approaches the #speed of #light, it’s length contracts proportionally to it’s velocity.
There is a limit at 186,000 mi/s, where velocity approaches c from the left, such that you can always get closer to c but will never quite get to velocity c. Hence, mass can never achieve the speed of light.
Philosophy goes where hard science can’t, or won’t. Philosophers have a license to speculate about everything from metaphysics to morality, and this means they can shed light on some of the basic questions of existence. The bad news? These are questions that may always lay just beyond the limits of our comprehension.
Here are eight mysteries of philosophy that we’ll probably never resolve.
