comment Does infinite time = time with no end = never?
The short answer is that if it takes an infinite amount of time to reach point B, then the object never reaches it. Of course, in the real world, no matter how precise your measurement is, there will be some time after which the object is closer to B than your instrument can distinguish.

comment Infinite amount of additions, finite sum?
@ZoltánSchmidt: While I found your question interesting, I think at some point you just need to accept that adding an infinite amount of terms can result in a finite result, and the intuition will come later. Someone on this site once quoted something along the lines of "In math, we don't understand things; we just get used to them". Try to work out the $\sum \frac1{2^n}$ example. It's easy to do and it will give you some insight as to why the total sum is $2$ and not $\infty$.

comment Is it true that $ \sum \limits_{i=1}^{\infty} f(i) = \lim_{n \to \infty} \sum \limits_{i=1}^{n} f(i) $?
By the way, it doesn't make sense to ask if this holds for all $n$, since $n$ isn't a free variable.

comment $f(x)=f(x^2+ 1/4)$ , $f$ is continuous from $\mathbb{R}$ to $\mathbb{R}$
$f$ can't be one-to-one, since for example $f(0) = f(\frac14)$.

comment Problem with differentiation as a concept.
Small correction: The definition is either $\lim_{h \to 0} \frac{f(x+h)-f(x)}{h}$ or $\lim_{x \to x_0} \frac{f(x)-f(x_0)}{x-x_0}$.

comment Integration of function
The binomial theorem proper only works when the power is a positive integer. You could get a series expansion, but otherwise I doubt this has a closed form. If it was a definite integral, you may be able to relate to the beta function using the substitution $u=\frac{a}{x}$.

Please make sure I did the LaTeX right. Is it $1+\frac{a}{x}$ or $\frac{1+a}{x}$?

comment Easy way to find the streamlines
If you're not supposed to do it rigorously, then sketching $\mathbf{F}$ at a few select points can give you an idea.

Try graphing it, for particular values of $k$.
