I'm looking to transfer to University of Nevada Las Vegas. I've read that the local casinos snatch up CS majors like heroin brownies. Can anybody offer any other input to keep in mind?
I've checked and they're ABET accredited. I'm currently attending University of Arizona which was ranked in...
Yes I tried it:
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Malformed pattern "000'-0000"
at java.text.DecimalFormat.applyPattern(DecimalFormat.java:2610)
at java.text.DecimalFormat.<init>(DecimalFormat.java:435)
at PhoneNumberGenerator.main(PhoneNumberGenerator.java:15)...
I tried that, and it threw an exception.
PhoneNumberGenerator.java:15: error: illegal escape character
DecimalFormat df = new DecimalFormat( "000 \- 0000" )
I ended up separating the number thusly:
number = r.nextInt( 10000000 ) ;
part1 = number / 10000 ; // this gets the first three...

Hi guys I'm helping my girlfriend with her Calc 1 homework and we seem to be stuck on this one problem. Am I missing something obvious?

The most frustrating part is that I apparently was correct the first time, but the answer they wanted was positive rather than negative. But looking at the problem, the vector is clearly negative in the X and Y directions!
Think of mu (μ) as the magnitude of how much an object cancels out the forces trying to accelerate it.
There are two mu values for any object. The static and kinetic friction coefficients. Static is the resistance for an object to acceleration, kinetic is the resistance to acceleration after...
I want to apologize ahead of time for my apparent inability to get LaTeX to display properly.

First, I'd like to thank everybody a head of time. You guys have been an enormous help.
Second, I don't mind telling you that I'm finding sequences and series extremely frustrating. I usually pick this stuff up like nobody's business.

It took some mathematical gymnastics, but I eventually got the right number. I'm running into a strange problem with these rules. I don't seem to need to multiply by dx for some reason I can't fathom.
Homework Statement
Given the following integral and value of n, approximate the integral using the methods indicated (round your answers to six decimal places):
\int_0^1 e^{-3x^2} dx
n = 4
(a) Trapezoidal Rule
(b) Midpoint Rule
This is the only one I'm having trouble...
Welcome to the wonderful world of integrals! There are times when I want to kick small, defenseless animals because of this stuff. I usually listen to some thrash metal while studying math. I don't know why, but it helps!
Try to remember as many identities as you possibly can. It makes life a...

So now I'm finishing the evaluation:
Original:
V = 2L [Hx - \frac{a}{3} x^3]^{\sqrt(\frac{H}{a})}_0
V = 2L [H{\sqrt(\frac{H}{a})} - \frac{a}{3} {\sqrt(\frac{H}{a})}^3]
V = 2L [H{\sqrt(\frac{H}{a})} - \frac{a}{3} \frac{H}{a} {\sqrt(\frac{H}{a})}]
V = 2L...
I don't see where L and H are specified. The only information that it gives you is that 1 m3 of water is 10000 newtons.
L and H are constants, but they're not specified. As far as I can tell, H is where y = (a constant) and provide the upper limit of the the top of the boat, but is not...

The design of boats is based on Archimedes' Principle, which states that the buoyant force on an object in water is equal to the weight of the water displaced. Suppose you want to build a sailboat whose hull is parabolic with cross section y=ax2, where a is a constant. Your...

Your acceleration is your change in velocity over time. So if you started at v0 = 5 m/s and accelerated to v= 6 m/s you would have acceleration. If you constantly move 5 m/s, you have acceleration = 0.
So if we plugged this into the equation,
Force = mass (0)
If you have zero...

In the figure, you throw a ball toward a wall at speed 26.0 m/s and at angle θ0 = 37.0˚ above the horizontal. The wall is distance d = 17.0 m from the release point of the ball. (a) How far above the release point does the ball hit the wall? What are the (b) horizontal and...
You're right about going around in circles.
(x) 1= \frac{2^{x+1}}{x} (x)
x= 2^{x+1}
\ln(x)= \ln(2^{x+1})
\ln(x)= x \ln(2) + \ln(2)
\ln(x) - \ln(2) = x \ln(2)
\frac{\ln(x)}{\ln(2)} - 1 = x
This will give you an x = something, but you still have x in both sides of the...
You're right! I can't believe I forgot this. Thanks dynamicsolo!
btw, That's some great advice in your signature.
