Introduction to Mechanics - Kleppner

I have been searching for some sort of solutions manual for this book but have yet to find anything but a site with a few links to a couple of solved problems. If not, I suggest we make one. I could hash together my work and scan them, though I do not know whether they are right for about half of th...

AP Physics C Textbook

Hello, this year I am now a Senior at my High school. I am taking the current AP Physics course which will be taught in a manner to prepare its students for the AP Physics B test. I'd prefer to take the Physics C test as it appears to be much more beneficial to me. I have read the recommended textbo...

Re: Fast booting

Raid 0 some SSDs. You already know that's the easiest way to gain a big boost in read/write speed. Asrock sells some motherboards which feature a quick-boot option. I think Asus does also. It's much simpler just to have a machine run 24/7 and use standby if you don't want to buy the hardware to boot...

Re: Your favourite calculator

Casio FX115ES currently, used to use an older version of it but this new one has two lines and so it supports writing fractions visually
in my view, it has all the benefits of a large calculator in a small package minus the large screen

Re: Shortcut for matrices

is row reduction the only method? take this for example \begin{vmatrix} 2 & -2 & -3 & | & 1 & 0 & 0 \\ 4 & -3 & 2 & | & 0 & 1 & 0 \\ -2 & 3 & -7 & | & 0 & 0 & 1 \\ \end{vmatrix} by row reduction it takes a while, but is okay \be...

Shortcut for matrices

I'v recently taken a trend towards trying to solve everything in my head or at least by paper and pencil, so I've come to a bump: inverse matrices. The only proper way I know to approach this is by reducing each row, which gets unbearable after a point. Multiplying matrices, determinants, etc are al...

Re: I dont want to be eaten by a clown(math problem)

we should have helped him
another one of us is lost to the clowns...
use sum-product, then simplify
sin a + sin b = 2sin[(1/2)(a+b)]cos[(1/2)(a-b)]
*inverse for sin a - sin b add/subtract
simplify
