godlingimaginary_num6er: fidn the slope, then use the point-slope form to figure it out
JimDangleoh symbolically
lol sorry
rashakilimaginary_num6er: the equation that defines a line through those poinst
oljanxIt seems like there have been a lot of calc students in here the last few days, I don't feel so alone anymore...
imaginary_num6erwell, I know how to get the equation
just forget what I said lol
JimDangleok well then just theta = arctan(y/x)
FlannelJimDangle: er, how is that in terms of H?
JimDangleoh i see what you mean now
wolfboneJimDangle, why not just diff. the equations I gave you implicitly wrt time?
JimDanglewell you just gave them too me
im still having trouble understanding some stuff
to*
wolfboneno inverse trig. functions necessary
JimDangleok
imaginary_num6erbtw, are like most of the people here math majors or something?
rashakilno, some people are not even something
thermoplyaeI'd say most people here at CS majors
I'd say the majority of people on IRC are CS majors, but that's more of a guess
at -> are
JimDanglewolfbone sorry for me being braindead
thermoplyae thats a pretty good guess though
abasinisvacantdoes anyone here use a hp 49+ graphing calculator?
JimDanglecould even expand it to most people on a computer are CS majors
most people that major in something
anyways back to math
oljanxthermoplyea: That might vary depending on what network you look at, you're probably right for this one
godlingthermoplyae: because CS majors inherently have no life other than their machines? :)
JimDanglelol.
BALLIN4REALSFor the CS majors out there, help me clear something up. Is Comp Engineering just CS's geekier, dumber, younger brother?
TRWBWthermoplyae: well cs majors outnumber math majors about 50 to 1, so there is a lot in favor of your guess
JimDangleCE has different fields
CS is mainly programming
oljanxI've recently switched my focus from CS to Math, I rule
BALLIN4REALSoljanx good for you.
oljanxI'm not very good at either though...
JimDanglebut CE isnt just building hardware from what my CE major friend said
abasinisvacanttrwbw, are math majors much needed?
thermoplyaegodling: No, just that most non-CS people don't use IRC at all
