A string is wound symmetrically around a circular rod. The string goes exactly
4 times around the rod. The circumference of the rod is 4 cm and its length is 12 cm.
Find the length of the string.
Show all your work.

(It was presented at a meeting of the European Mathematical Society in 2001,
"Reference levels in mathematics in Europe at age16").

Can you solve it? You may want to try before seing the solution.
[I sometimes train olympiad students at my university, so I like such problems].

restart;
eq:= 2/Pi*cos(t), 2/Pi*sin(t), 3/2/Pi*t; # The equations of the helix, t in 0 .. 8*Pi:
               
p:=plots[spacecurve]([eq, t=0..8*Pi],scaling=constrained,color=red, thickness=5, axes=none):
plots:-display(plottools:-cylinder([0,0,0], 2/Pi, 12, style=surface, color=yellow),
                         p, scaling=constrained,axes=none);
 

VectorCalculus:-ArcLength(<eq>, t=0..8*Pi);

                           20

 

Let's look at the first loop around the rod.
If we develop the corresponding 1/4 of the cylinder, it results a rectangle  whose sides are 4 and 12/4 = 3.
The diagonal is 5 (ask Pythagora why), so the length of the string is 4*5 = 20.

 

 

 

 

The GroupTheory package in Maple includes facilities for working with finitely presented groups - groups defined by finitely many generators and defining relations.  We now have a video tutorial that covers the basics of this aspect of the package.  As always, we appreciate feedback and suggestions regarding this feature, or new features that you would like to see in the GroupTheory package.

 

 

Here we have a very brief introduction to the use of embedded components, but effective for the study of the polynomials in operations and some products made with maple 2015 to strengthen and raise the mathematics today.

Hi all

I want to produce following c_nm's(which are differentiation based formula) . assume that N and M are known and f(t) is arbitrary. also n=1,2,...,N and m=0,1,..,M-1

how can we do this?

regards

Hi all;

I have following program for plotting numerous function using hybrid functions.

if g1(t) is arbitrary function and g2(t) is its approximate by hybrid functions, I want to have a table of g1(t)-g2(t) for different value of t. but the result is without numeric values. what part is wrong????

best wishes

Hi all,

Assume that we have a vector, namely v:=[1,-2,3,-4] and we want to construct special matrix namely Z, from Vector v as follow:

first row is 1, secnond row is -2,..., the end row is -4 namely
Matrix([[1,1,1,1],[-2,-2,-2,-2],[3,3,3,3],[-4,-4,-4,-4]]);

in the other word every row of matrix is 4 times corresponding componet in vector.(for example v is (1*4))

how can we do this?

best wishes

Hi Again

Assume that we have known matrix namely, Q, of order (m+1)*(m+1) and we want to construct following matrix

where 0(bar) is zero matrix of orde (m+1)*(m+1) and New matrix should be of order {N*(m+1)}*{N*(m+1)} where N is known constant.

thanks for any guide
