comment Solid of revolution about a slanted line
How could u = x and u = x + dx at the same time?

But that's avoiding the problem...

comment Is there actually a difference when we say 'perpendicular' vs 'tangent'
Sorry but what do you mean when you say "two lines in Euclidean space are tangent if they are the same line"? Those are parallel lines yes? Lines are tangent lines to themselves?

comment Has anyone held an NSERC award before as an undergraduate recently?
Professors on average say get 10 emails on research. If five of the emails are structured in a "spam" template. Then the professor isn't going to read all of them or even care because he/she knows that the writer doesn't really care about his/her research. I hope that clarifies more.

@Mariano. I thought that because profs get so many of the standard emails on research that if they are just mass sent, then they won't read it because they know the student isn't interested in it.

Some of these deadlines are coming up soon. I need to act quickly. How must I be able to introduce myself? I am reading your blog right now and wish I had raed about it earlier. It's useful to drop into the office, but what to do if they aren't in your university?

My transcripts for 2nd year won't be ready in a while, should I just send my 1st year transcripts to Form 202 I? I don't have a lot of Math classes in my first year transcripts.

Oh sorry, I meant that i have no chance because I am a second year student. 3rd/4th years are favored everyone else, or so I heard.

comment Finding an equation for a circle given two points
Perhaps if you understand what a circle is, it may help. A circle is really just all points on the plane equidistant from the center.

comment Inequality; when we switch signs? From basic to complicated
Actually what happens if we have f(a) < g(b)? What if I apply h(x) to it? That is does the idea still hold if I do H(f(a)) < H(g(b))?

Woah! that's really helpful! I learned the definition of "strictly increasing/increasing" etc from sequences so I am familiar with them now!

comment What are the properties of a prime number?
@Daniel, that answer my question. I am indeed looking for a "general" form. Almost like a formula with what I have.

Maybe it doesn't exist then...good point anon.

comment Can someone please remind me what identity this is? Cross Product and Integrals
@dylan, I know what you mean, if u isn't a function of x, it's a constant, done deal. I am thinking of both vectors being a function of x. Then again, I don't even remember what the identity is!

comment Can someone please remind me what identity this is? Cross Product and Integrals
But are the identities right? It's looks something like the above. Because if the cross product is diffuclt to do, then it may be worth my while to integrate one of the vectors first and then take the cross product.

No, not Stoke's theorem. It's not any theorem. It was just an easy way to integrate vectors. It has nothing to do with curl or anything
