    Laws of equivalence

    Use equivalence laws to show that (A ∨ C) ∧ (B ∨ C) ∧ (A ∨ D) ∧ (B ∨ D) and (A ∧ B) ∨ (C ∧ D) are logically equivalent. I am trying to figure out how to go about this problem. The part that confuses me is that there are 4 separate terms. How would you apply the laws on that?

    Not sure if index laws or log laws

    Ok so I have another question - I'm struggling to get log laws and need to understand what's happening that I'm not grasping Express y in terms of x x=4(3^y) + 3^y - 3^(y+log_3x) So my thought was to take 4 over to the left so it becomes x/4 = 3^y + 3^y - 3(^y+log_3x) Then multiply out...

    Echo - Reflection of sound. Do you feel echo will be always more in a closed area than a open area? Examples : Open Area - Valley. Closed Area - Well. Can we deduce laws of echo ? Thanks & Regards, Prashant S Akerkar

    What is the SI unit of Equilibrium? Is Equilibrium scalar or vector quantity? Can we define laws of Equilibrium similar to law of inertia or Newton's laws of motion? Thanks & Regards, Prashant S Akerkar

    Applying laws of logarithms and relations

    Hey, I'm stumped on the second part of a question that asks: Here's my simplification: I'm unsure if I took it too far, however I don't understand the second part of the question. How would they be related? Any and all help would be great, thanks.

    Laws of indices, problem

    Hi. I have recently started to look at laws of indices (basic I know). I understand the laws and can work out basic bits, like 4^-2, (x^2)^3, 25^-1/2. However, when it becomes more complicated I am finding it difficult. Here is an example of a tough one, my workings out and my answer (which...

    Using Newton's laws etc. pulley type.

    Consider a situation where there is a particle1 which has mass 6kg. The particle is momentarily at rest at an angle of 42 degrees above the horizontal. The particle is then connected by an inextensible, light string to another particle 2 with mass of 3.5kg. Now, this string then goes over...

    Deriving Equations for Laws of Motion

    Guys I am trying to teach myself calculus, and I have stumbled across these manuals my dad had and there are a few problem series that I need help with. Any suggestions or direction to help outside the forum is appreciated. 1) Suppose a body "A" does not begin at rest, but instead starts with...

    monotonic laws for ordinal subtraction

    I have to prove some monotonic laws for ordinals. It's quite comfortable for me to show monotonic laws of ordinal addition (e.g. $\beta\leq\gamma\Rightarrow\alpha+\beta\leq\alpha+\gamma$). But when it comes to laws with subtraction, then I'm not sure where to start. Maybe it's because of...

    Newton's Laws: Question 2

    An exceptional standing jump would raise a person 0.80m off the ground. To do this, what force must a 68kg person exert against the ground? Assume the person crouches a distance of 0.20m prior to jumping and thus the upward force has this distance to act over before he leaves the ground...

    Newton's Laws: Question 1

    Again just looking for feedback. Thanks in advance. I've included diagrams for assessment too. A rocket of mass 2.75\times 10^6kg exerts a vertical force of 3.55\times 10^7N on the gases it expels. Determine: a) the rocket's acceleration b)it's velocity after 8s c) time taken to reach...

    Kinematics and Newton's Laws

    Looking for feedback in the quest to really understand kinematics :) A train with mass 3.6\times{10^5}kg travels with a velocity of 120km/h = 33\frac{1}{3}m/s. Superman needs to stop the train in 150m. How much force does Superman need to exert? 1) Calculate train's decelration v_x^2 =...

    Potency laws with fractions?

    I know that if you have: 64^(2/3) = (64^(1/3)^2 = 4^2 = 16 But what if you have: 9^(3/2)? How do you begin to count this? I have one idea but it seems like it's wrong. 9^(3/2) = 9^(1/2)^2 = 3^2 = 9 So how do you count this?
