hey foo...everyone dies in Shingeki no Kyojin! hahaha :P

Yeah I always wanted to watch rurouni kenshin, I saw some of it on tv but not a lot. It's too bad you're done with math, there's a lot of very interesting stuff out there for you to still explore. It might not be relevant to you now, but if you ever want to continue your education and you start yearning for some more intellectual advancement, you'll probably like number theory and stuff.

And this is a dumb question but do you want to listen to a song I composed and produced? I'm pretty drunk right now but it would humor me for you to listen to it, if you don't want to no prob lol:

And I didn't mention it before but life is shitty, man. Never gets better, at least for me. I need alcohol to deal with how fucked up society is, man if there was never an internet or computers it would be so great, everything is so dehumanized now. I'm sure I'll regret writing this to you in the morning.

But anyway if you wanna listen to an amazing song try Ulrich Schnauss - A Letter From Home. Always nice to broaden your horizons, right?

Jeez you have a memory like an elephant. How's it going? I haven't been watching a lot of anime lately, been busy with other games and stuff.
MysticStrider Dec 3, 2009 1:01 AM
That's great to know man! I'm glad you liked it cuz I have enjoyed it myself! XD This movie is really one amazing martial arts movie we ever seen for a while since Tony Ja's movies... dang. I've never seen such incredible storyline and fight scenes in this movie. oh yea, and I think there's some other good kung fu movies i know of but i'm still trying to look them up as I have forgotten the names.

I'll be able to better tell you when I'm finished, but I'm enjoying it. At first I thought it was your typical crime drama, but they've thrown in some curveballs that I couldn't even expect. I still think that overall it's overrated, but the ending might change my mind.

what's the anime on the "100 members" banner?
Sheepdude Nov 13, 2009 12:11 AM
The natural logarithm function is the inverse of the exponential function, so look for Log or Ln fit for the curve. The method depends on your calculator or program, and I only know how to do it with a TI-89.

If you need more explanation than that, get back to me.
Sheepdude Oct 23, 2009 9:46 AM


Yeah I've used it but only a small bit. Depends what you're using it for, it does a lot of stuff.

Unfortunately, I've yet to get a perfect score on an exam while bleeding to death from bullet wounds. Maybe for my mathematics certification... ^^

Alright.



-The amplitude is the vertical distance from the center of the sine wave to one of its peaks or troughs.
-The "center" is the line which runs through the middle of the graph.
-The period is the distance from one peak to another or from one trough to another.
-The phase shift is the distance that the graph is shifted left or right. Notice that the phase shift is modular, meaning if you shift the graph by a multiple of its period, you essentially get the same graph.

Here's the general form of the sine equation:

f(x) = a sin(bx - h) + k

Let's take the most basic form of the sine equation and compare it to the general form in order to examine these values:

f(x) = sin(x)

We know that sin(x) varies between -1 and 1. The amplitude is the distance from the center of the wave (the line y = 0 in this case) to any peak or trough, which in this case is obviously 1. The general way of solving for the amplitude algebraically is to find the distance between the highest point and lowest point on the wave and divide by 2. This gives:

amplitude = a = (maximum value - minimum value)/2 = (1 - [-1])/2 = 2/2 = 1

The center is simply the line that lies on the midpoint between the highest and lowest points. If you recall, the midpoint on a line between two points p and o is (p+o)/2. So:

center = k = (maximum value + minimum value)/2 = (1 + [-1])/2 = 0/2 = 0

The center for our given equation is y = 0, which is what we would expect.

You can also examine the effects of b and h on the graph if you wanted. b effectively shrinks or expands the graph horizontally by changing the length of the period, and h affects the starting point of the wave. I don't have a solid approach for examining the sine equation since my knowledge has come from experimentation and deduction, so excuse me if my explanation isn't coherent enough. I doubt you'll need to do this sort of thing on any calculus test, anyway.

I had this all written out but then I refreshed my browser and had to rewrite it ><

June 20 is the 171st day of the year.
December 21 is the 355th day of the year.

If we take f(x) to be the function representing the length of daylight on a given day x, 0<x<366, then we have:

f(171) = 14 hours, 32 minutes, 47 seconds = 14.55 hours
f(355) = 9 hours, 46 minutes, 13 seconds = 9.77 hours

Due to the cyclic nature of the rate of change of daylight, we choose sine to be our representative function. The general form of the sine equation is:

f(x) = y = a sin(b[x - h/b]) + k

a is the amplitude
b is the frequency
h affects the phase shift
k is the center of the amplitude

All these values are fairly simple for us to find if we understand exactly how they modify the sine function.

a = (maximum value - minimum value)/2 = (14.55 - 9.77)/2 = 2.39
b = 2 pi / period = 2 pi / 365
k = (maximum value + minimum value)/2 = (14.55 + 9.77)/2 = 12.16

h/b is a little trickier to figure out. Normally, the highest point on the sine graph occurs a quarter of the way through the period (x = 365/4 = 91.25 in our case) but we want it to occur at x = 171, so we need to move the graph 171 - 91.25 = 79.75 units. Therefore, we set h/b = 79.25.

The resulting equation is:

f(x) = y = 2.39 sin([2 pi/365][x - 79.25]) + 12.16

Simplify to get:

f(x) = 2.39 sin(2 pi x/365 - 158.5 pi/365) + 12.16

The graph isn't perfect but it's damn close (remember in the previous problem I said we must assume a perfect system? Unfortunately, a function of the amount of daylight in a day isn't a perfect sine wave). The only thing that's really difficult about this problem is knowing what the constants in the sine equation are and how to use them to manipulate the graph.

Ok thanks you so much!
