#### 2017-03-28 Calc 2:

Hello Victoria,    Let me give you some hints, and then if you need more help let me know.    1. Use integration by parts...letting u=f(x) and dv=g''(x) dx.    2. Use the substitution y=e^(-x^2)...

#### 2017-03-12 Simple Harmonic Motion:

It could be, for a 2-dimensional medium...like the surface of a drum or some other flexible surface that can oscillate.  The usual example students see is in a first course in differential equations..

#### 2017-02-22 Calculus 2:

Hello Victoria,    1. Perform each integral, then solve for b in terms of a.  .  The left side becomes e^b-1, the right side is 2(e^a-1), but they  .  are equal.  Thus, e^b-1=2(e^a-1)...now solve for b

#### 2017-02-12 Mathematical constants with units.:

I think it is safe to say that mathematical constants are unitless (i cannot think of one that isn't).    A physical constant, sometimes fundamental physical constant, is a physical quantity that is generally

#### 2016-07-30 Frog crossing a bridge:

Hello Woody,    Yes, it is a familiar problem (or ones like it).    Theoretically, the frog never reaches the end of the bridge...since there will always be  some distance (however small) that remains
