Hello,

 

In a course I am looking at, the system of units is mostly in FPS.  Wich I never use.  But they ask sometime to convert it to SI.  But with Maple, I have a problem:

For Force, it use lb that I cannot convert into N

So what unit should I use to convert FPS to SI for the force.

 

I know that slug*ft*s^(-2) convert to N with no problem.

 

Thank you for your help.

Hi,

 

I want to compute the determinant of a matrix A with this formula:

 Can someone help me to do it.  Of course, here I am using Einstein's convention.

Thank you in advance.

Hello everybody,

I will start a course in mastering QM in a MOOC format (Massive Open Online Course).  Up to now, I always do the calculation by hand and sometimes with the LinearAlgebra package.  But now I need to do the calculation more rapidly.  So I decided to learn how to use this package for this course.

 

The help system give a too generalized way to do it.  Even by looking the example, I didn't find praticle example to it.  So is there a generous person who could take a little bit of hi time to show me how to do it by using an exemple that yo will find attach to this post.

 

Thank you in advance for your trouble.

Besgt regards.

Hello everybody,

 

I find a answer on that subject at this link: http://www.mapleprimes.com/maplesoftblog/95508-Monte-Carlo-Pi

But for starting easy, I try this:

with(RandomTools[MersenneTwister]);
directpi := proc (n)
local i, x, y, N;
N := 0;
Digits := 2;
for i to n do
x := GenerateFloat();
y := GenerateFloat();
if x^2+y^2 < 1 then
N := N+1:
end if:
end do:
N;
end proc;


evalf(directpi(4000)/(1000.0), 4);

                             3.176

I would like to know if this code is appropriate and if it is possible to have a random number between -1 to 1 so it will be easier to plot the points in the square with the circle inside.

 

Thank you.

This is an addition to the following post:

http://www.mapleprimes.com/questions/141795-Unit-Conversion-Problem

 

But I use the clickable facilities of Maple.  Here is the problem:

>32[[degC]];

                         32[[degC]]
right-click -> Units -> Replace units -> degF

                         288           
                         --- [[degF]]
                          5            

>evalf[5]( (2) );
                       57.600[[degF]]

but if I do that:


>convert(32, 'temperature', 'degC', 'degF');

                              448
                              ---
                               5
                           
>evalf[5]( (4) );
                             89.600

Why the conversion is bad when you try to do it by the clickable way????????????
