Please help me with this math problem? (answer)

Hello Sun,   Just for your reference (and since I don't have too much time right now), first find the eigenvalues of the matrix.  Do this by solving   (2 - r)(-2 - r) + 5α = 0,   the solutions will be your eigenvalues (r = ±√(4-5α) for your reference)...

Please help me with this math problem? (answer)

Hello Sun,   What's next is simply to solve the quadratic!  So, multiply it out to get   r2 -αr + 5 = 0   and use the quadratic formula to find the roots, which will be your eigenvalues.   Regards, Hassan H.

Please help me with this math problem? (answer)

Hello Sun,   For your reference, since the others haven't settled on an answer, your solution will be:   x = c1( 2, -3, 2 )et + c2et( 0, cos(2t), sin(2t) ) + c3et( 0, sin(2t), -cos(2t) ).   Clearly both methods above/below will work.  Having briefly...

Subjects and Predicates 2: 7th grade Ela/English in Missouri (answer)

Hello Laura,   In this sentence, the subject is "Blanchard," but the predicate is everything that follows, i.e. "successfully made the first human parachute drop in 1793."  You would put a slash right after "Blanchard" to separate the two.   Blanchard...

Math question (answer)

Hello Titaree, We can generalize this question a bit, so that you can have a formula for similar problems at hand. Suppose Computer A (or Machine A, Person A, etc.) can do 1 job in x hours, and Computer B can do 1 job in y hours.  These are equivalent to Computer A:    ...

Find the laplace transform? (answer)

Sun, Proceeding on the assumption that uπ(t) is defined as in my comment above, the Laplace transform is very simple to compute.  Just apply the definition of the transform! £{uπ(t)} = ∫0∞ e-stuπ(t)dt = ∫π∞ e-stdt. I am certain you can compute the above integral. Regards, Hassan...

Find the inverse Laplace transform? (answer)

Hello Sun and Yuan P., While there is nothing wrong with the approach that Yuan takes, he may not be familiar with the line of questions that you have posed recently.  So, I will answer based on the work you have done in the past few questions; namely, you have expressed inverse Laplace...

Express the solution? (answer)

Hello Sun, The only difference between this problem and the one from yesterday is that you need to know how the Laplace transform behaves when applied to a derivative.  This should be something you have already covered, or at least it should be in your table of transforms, since you...

Find the inverse Laplace transform? (answer)

Hello Sun, You will simply want to "split up" the expression for F(s), and then use known (and oftentimes tabulated) results on the Laplace transform to finish the computation.  So, write F(s) = G(s)H(s) where H(s) = 1/(s2+1), and note that the inverse Laplace transform...

How to differentiate x^sinx ? (answer)

Hello Mike, Often, to differentiate a function y = f(x) with a variable base and exponent, you should make use of the identity g(x)h(x) = eh(x) ln g(x) and use your know rules for differentiating the exponential function to proceed.  You will need to use the Product Rule for Differentiation...

Higher Level Math Question---> Russian Lucky Numbers?! (answer)

Hello Miss., This question from nearly a week ago seems never to have been resolved favorably, so I will attempt to give a brief exposition of its solution.  First, we must be clear on what constitutes a bus ticket.  From the wording of the problem, it seems to me that any string...

solve equation x+7=3 (answer)

Hello Velina, You essentially only have to perform one step in order to arrive at the solution to this equation: x + 7 = 3 x + 7 - 7 = 3 - 7     (Subtract 7 from both sides in order to isolate the x on the left-hand side) x + 0 = -4   (Remember...

Difference between ions and radicals (answer)

Hello Prasenjeet, Briefly, an ion is, as you suspect, a molecule with a net positive or negative charge, while a (free) radical is a molecule (or fragment thereof) with an unpaired electron. Ions are of course ubiquitous in chemistry.  For instance, when we dissolve ammonia gas in water,...

Find the Laplace transform? (answer)

Hello Sun, The Laplace transform of a function f(t) defined for t≥0 is £{f(t)} = ∫0∞ e-st f(t) dt, provided of course that the above converges. In your case, f(t) = cos(at), so you need to evaluate £{cos(at)} = ∫0∞ e-st cos(at) dt. This is an integration-by-parts (twice)...
