Just a student trying to learn maple.

MaplePrimes Activity

These are questions asked by wlferguson19


I'm trying to write units in Maple but it seems to not be working for certain things.  For example, I would like to express the quantity of 0.78 kg CO2/ kg.  While kg is recognized, CO2 is not.  Is there some sort of workaround? Other examples include things such as "mol He". 


bessel.mwHow would I tell maple to stop using a function class to abrievate the work.  I'm trying to have it show the actual derivative instead of it giving me a Bessel function


I want to see the series solution in other words

Is there anyway to animate d'Alemberts wave solution as time goes on? 

Suppose I have the initial value problem:

PDE:   utt = uxx

ICS:    u(x,0) = x

            ut(x,0) = f(x)

where f(x) is piecewise defined as:

f(x) = cos(pi*x), -1/2 < x < 1/2               and

             0             otherwise

Is there a feature in maple to plot even, odd, and fourier extensions of functions (PDEs)? 

Say we have the function f(x) = x + 1


Hi everyone,

I'm a student studying pde's and I was trying to find a tool for me to understand it a lot better.

The heat equation is given by: Ut = a^2*Uxx

Take the example of a rod that is insulated at both ends (establishing BC's) of Ux(0,t) = 0 and Ux(L,t) = 0. Let's define the intial condition for any temperature at point x as x*(L-X).  We know that if we try to solve the steady-state solution, setting Ut = 0, we get Uxx = 0 which implies the general solution is U(x) = C1x + C2

From our boundary conditions we can see that a rod insulated at both ends -- and I should say laterally also -- should have a graph that turns from a quadratic to a horizontal line that is defined as the average of the initial conditon function from 0 to L.


In summary: Does maple have a feature to animate the function turning from a quadratic to a horizontal line? I think it would be beneficial in the long term for learning about BC's and visualizing them in my head after I play around with it.
