Tangents and Normals of Curves

- Tangents and Normals of Curves If you differentiate the equation of a curve, you will get a formula for the gradient of the curve. Before you learnt calculus, you would have found the gradient of a curve by drawing a tangent to the curve and measuring the gradient of this. This is because the gradient of a curve at a point is equal to the gradient of the tangent at that point. Example: Find the equation of the tangent to the curve y = x³ at the point (2, 8). dy = 3x² dx Gradient of tangent when x = 2 is 3×2² = 12....   [tags: Papers]

A History of Curvature and Applications of Hyperbolic Space

- While the study of curvature is an ancient one, the geometry of curved surfaces is a topic that has been slowly developed over centuries. The Ancient Greeks certainly considered the curvature of a circle and a line distinct, noting that lines do not bend, while circles do. Aristotle expanded on this concept explaining that there were three kinds of loci: straight, circular, and mixed (Coolidge)Then in the third century B.C. Apollonius of Perga found that at each point of a conic section there is exactly one normal line (Coolidge, 375-6)....   [tags: geometry, ancient greeks, einstein]

Experimental Study of Gas Absorpiton in a Dry System and in a Wet System

- 1. Introduction The development of low cost removal process of acid gases and dust particles in the flue gas from incinerators is desirable. A cyclone scrubber is one of the processes, which can absorb gases, separate particles, and decrease gas temperature simultaneously. Although some researches on cyclone scrubbers have been reported and mathematical models have been developed to understand the mechanism of dust separation in the cyclone scrubber, it has still not been clear enough. The main objective of this work is to elucidate the particle removal mechanism in a wet cyclone scrubber....   [tags: Engines, Dust, Particles]

The Validity of Existing Pool Boiling Curve Models for Spheres in Nitrogen

- This experiment determined the validity of existing pool boiling curve models for spheres in nitrogen. We quenched copper, stainless steel and brass spheres of two different diameters in a pool of nitrogen. We created boiling curves comparing the temperature difference between the sphere surface and saturated nitrogen to the heat flux from the sphere. The curves were then compared to Rohsenow’s material dependent equation for nucleate boiling and other models to predict the minimum and maximum heat fluxes, independent of surface material....   [tags: Scientific Research ]

Demography Is The Branch Of Science That Studies The Changing Human Population

- Demography is the branch of science that studies the changing human population. Demographers track population changes in different countries and regions. The changes are represented in graphs and tables called survivorship curves and life tables. Survivorship describes the pattern of survival in a population, in this case, humans. Life tables track groups of organisms born at the same time throughout their life span, recording how many continue to survive in each succeeding year. Survivorship is displayed through three types of curves on a graph, types I, II, and III....   [tags: Population, Demography, Life expectancy, Rural]

The School Choice : Inequality And Competition

- Inequality and Competition In the 1990’s the school choice movement gained momentum through John E. Chubb and Terry M.

Many advocates for school choice share a similar belief in the positive effect school choice and competition create in schools.

Light, in its purest form (such as sunlight) was thought to be colorless. However, progress in understanding color was made by Isaac Newton when in 1666 he was able to show that normal white light already contained all the colors of the spectrum, which could be separated using a prism. He also concluded from his experiments that objects have color because they selectively reflect certain colors of the spectrum while absorbing light of other colors....   [tags: Math]
