Sample text

The domain list {x, 0, 2 Pi} is similar to the counter list {k, 1, 10} that we might include as an argument to the Table function. In both cases we are naming a variable, x or k, and giving the minimum and maximum values that we want it to vary between. With the Plot function it is important that the variable we use in the function matches the one we use in the domain list. If we had entered Plot[Sin[y], {x, 0, 2 Pi}] it would not work because the two variables (x and y) do not match. The first argument to the Plot does not need to be a single function.

Quiz 1. Use Mathematica to compute ( 12 + 13 )3 exactly. 2. Use Mathematica to compute ( 12 + 13 )3 and represent the answer in decimal form. 3. It turns out that the numbers eπ and π e are pretty close to each other. ) Without computing them it is not easy to decide which is bigger. Use Mathematica to find out which number is bigger. CHAPTER 1 Getting Started 27 4. The volume of a ball of radius r is given by V = 43 πr 3 and its surface area is given by A = 4πr 2 . The radius of the earth is about 4000 miles.

The smaller rectangle is not as big as the original √ rectangle, but its dimensions still have the same ratio, which turns out to be (1 + 5)/2, a quantity known as the Golden Ratio. This ratio was know to the ancient Greeks as the “extreme and mean ratio” and ever since then has generated more hoopla then almost anything else in mathematics; some of it interesting and some of it of dubious value. If you Google “golden ratio” you should get half a million hits or so. CHAPTER 2 Two-Dimensional Graphics 35 The plot extends horizontally from −1 to 4 and vertically from 0 to 10.
